Who says running is a loner's sport? This is where South Florida runners come to train, gripe and shop.. In Short Foot Works is the place, staffers say, where novice runners come after they've bought the wrong shoes at those big, impersonal athletic stores. Owned by Hans and Laurie Huseby, the 27-year-old store specializes in running, walking and crosstraining gear, and staffers are seasoned runners. Inventory includes popular brands like New Balance and Mizuno shoes along with Teva walking sandals, running apparel, arch and sole supports, energy gels and sunglasses.
