Montclair Sporting Goods in Oakland, 510 -339-9313, 1970 Mountain Blvd Oakland, CA 94611 - Open 7 days a week!
The other week on a Sunday afternoon, my daughter informed me that her soccer cleats were hurting her feet. This was a problem as she had soccer camp the next morning. Fortunately, Montclair Sporting Goods is two exits away from my house, and it is open on Sundays. I called ahead and talked to the proprietor, Tom Revelli, and he told me that if I hurried he would wait for me.( It was 15 minutes until closing time.) Luckily, my daughter was able to have her foot measured and we were able to find a new comfy pair of soccer shoes for a week of intense drills. Sure you might find cleats slightly cheaper at chain sporting goods stores, but you will not get the hands on attention. In fact I think it is priceless to walk into a store, have someone greet you, and then sit down and have a professional fit you into the best shoe possible for your foot. The last time I was in that major chain store in Emeryville, I had a very hard time locating a sales associate.
Tom Revelli, has owned Montclair Sporting Goods since 1977! You can purchase anything from ski equipment and clothing, to Uggs and MBT walking shoes. (MBT shoes are shoes that claim to tone your legs and help your posture, you will see them featured all over Bliss Spa's catalogs. Tom's price on MBT's is the same as online sources and if he doesn't stock your size and style preference, he is able to special order them in record time.)
Just so you know, I visit many businesses in the community and unfortunately many don't make my cut. I am not affiliated with any of the businesses that I have featured, and I am not compensated for this blog. Obviously I can't guarantee the service you will receive, but it is my hope that you will be just as thrilled as I have been.
