In Motion Running is proud to welcome Stan Hockerson for a talk about running shoe innovations on Thursday, June 6 after our 6 p.m. fun run from the store.
Hockerson has spent his career examining, innovating and selling running shoes. After running competitively and studying kinesiology in college, Hockerson worked in some of the first running shops in California in the mid-1970s and started looking at shoe designs with a critical eye. He began sketching ways to improve the functionality of shoes and received his first of many running shoe patents in 1979 at the age of 24. The Albuquerque, N.M., resident has worked for several brands and continues to consult with shoe companies while also owning several running stores.
