Kids Shoes and Tax Free VA Weekend

Kids Shoes and Tax Free VA Weekend

We have shoes for your feet and did you know we also have ones for your kid’s feet? This weekend is a Tax-Free Holiday weekend in Virginia so come out to Pacers Alexandria, Clarendon, or Fairfax to have your kid’s foot sized and gait analyzed. Land the perfect pair of back to school shoes and get your little runners ready for the Clarendon Day Kids Dash on September 17. After this weekend, kid’s shoes will be back to their usual spots at Pacers Navy Yard and Fairfax.

Shoes also available for purchase online. For a full catalog of our newest kicks and to buy online, check out our lookbook!


Here are some of the models that we carry at Pacers Running:




Gel-Noosa Tri-11 – The new GEL-Noosa Tri 11 has a fun new upper featuring glow-in-the-dark print.  The shoe’s cushion system and reinforced stitched toe cap ensure comfort and durability that is sure to keep step with the speediest of young runners.



Gel-Nimbus 18 – The new GEL-Nimbus 18 is our most cushioned kid’s shoe.  The new FluideRide midsole combined with a seamless upper makes for an innovative, high performance kid’s shoe.




33-DFA – An exciting addition in Asics’ kid shoe line is the 33-DFA.  It is flexible, lightweight, and provides the unstructured performance similar to that found in the adult version.

Ride 8 – Every little wants to look like mom and dad, and now they can in the Ride 8. This a well cushioned neutral option for long runs or everyday use.

IMG_7588My name is Tripp Southerland. By day, I purchase footwear for Pacers Running. By morning and night, I run miles. I started racing the roads after college and have successfully lowered my personal bests every year since graduating. I may not have the fastest PR’s in town, but I have a pretty good idea about how to stay healthy and how to improve. I contribute to our features regarding training and on gear, specifically all of the shoes we sell.
