Runs In the Family: This Month, We’re All For Running!

Date: Jun-8-2020   #In the Community

We like to say that one good run will lead to another. If you’re starting to run for the first time, welcome to the club! Beginning a training program is exciting and challenging, and your running shoes are a major tool to help you reach your goals. If you’re a seasoned runner, then welcome to the Canadian Footwear club, as well!

When looking for a fresh pair of running shoes, the options can get overwhelming. Over the coming month, we’re celebrating runners of all levels while providing some fun challenges, giveaways, and insights on the technical side of running shoes, that will keep you comfortable, motivated, and active for months to come.

Do you need a neutral or stability supported shoe? One with plush cushioning or a firmer midsole? Something light and responsive or something durable that will keep you comfortable through long runs? All of these questions – and more – we’ll be answering.

As of late, we have seen a growing number of virtual running formats in the form of apps. These challenges have ranged from 1km time trials to 100-mile events. An app that the Canadian Footwear team swears by and is active on, is Strava!

Store Grand Re-Opening

Date: May-9-2020   #In the Community

Our Winnipeg retail stores will be re-opening on Tuesday May 12th.

We are so excited to be able to serve you again!

For the health and safety of our staff and customers, we have some new safety shopping guidelines in place. Please read through these guidelines before coming to our store:

All of our Winnipeg retail stores will be open:

Monday to Saturday: 9 AM – 6 PM
Sunday: 12 PM – 5 PM

We will be operating on a smaller scale and letting a limited number of customers in at a time. There is a possibility that you may have to wait to enter the store based on the number of customers inside. 
One of our staff members will have a sign-up list at the front entrance. Once you sign up, you can comfortably wait in your car for your turn, or you can wait distantly spaced at the door. Please do not come in groups larger than two (2).

If you are ill, or present any symptoms of COVID-19, you will not be allowed in our store.

To enter our store, you must be wearing face protection and you must wash your hands with sanitizer. We will have sanitizer stations throughout our stores.

Each customer will be matched with a fitting specialist to help you shop! We ask that you please to not touch and handle the shoe samples, let us help you. We will be giving you the option to fit yourself if you are uncomfortable with our staff fitting you. It is your choice!

We will not be accepting cash. Debit or credit cards only. Plastic gloves will be provided for use of the debit/credit machine if you would like to use one.

Our Staff

  • All our staff will conduct the Manitoba Health Self Screening Tool before coming to work.
  • Staff members will be wearing a face mask and/or face shield, and gloves.
  • Staff will be sanitizing their hands between each customer.
  • Each staff member will have their own fitting station, which will be completely sanitized between customers.
  • All common areas and surfaces will have regular scheduled sanitization.


If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out on social media, or give us a call at 1-204-944-7463, or toll free at 1-888-997-4849.


Thank you for being patient with us as we navigate this together!
