Best Local Athletic Store 

McU Sports

There is hardly a single sport that McU can't outfit the Treasure Valley for—whether it's skiing and snowboarding, or road cycling and mountain biking. That's just the beginning. McU's shelves are stocked with softball equipment, longboards, camping gear, car racks, snowshoes, Frisbee golf stuff, running and hiking attire, team uniforms and embroidery. The downtown location offers full-service bike tune-ups, while the location on Bogus Basin Road runs an exceptional ski and board repair shop. The 44-year-old business also offers myriad rental options for skis, bicycles and yard games.

2nd Place: Idaho Mountain TouringThere are many ways to tour Idaho's mountains, and even more mountains to tour. Idaho Mountain Touring can help with this—whether it's through an outstanding variety of road, mountain, cyclocross, cruiser, BMX or fitness bikes, or top-shelf alpine and Nordic skis, snowboards or snowshoes. The downtown location also offers high-quality camping gear, apparel, avalanche safety gear and even outdoor gear for the dog. Bikes, backcountry skis, splitboards and avalanche kits are available to rent at the downtown Boise store or the Meridian location.

3rd Place: Shu's Idaho Running Co.Three words: 3-D Footprint system. When it comes to shoe shopping, it doesn't get much more exciting than that. Shu's Running Company uses a personalized evaluation through its 3-D Footprint system to find the right fit for every customer. Many of those customers are referred to the shop through their podiatrists, chiropractors, physical therapists and sports doctors. Along with a wide selection of high-quality running shoes, the shop is also packed with running apparel and accessories. It even offers occasional clinics on nutrition for healthy runners.
