FootWorks has always been a Family Business, not just with the three generation of Huseby family members who have worked here. But also our Running Family, who have brought their family, friends and loved ones to get geared up to stay fit. Miami’s Running Headquarters since 1976 FootWorks took root as an Earth Shoe store in 1973. In 1976, store-owners and runners Hans and Laurie Huseby realized many of their healthy patrons were also runners and that there was an existing void in running retail. Filling the void became their mission and making runners feel at home was their objective.
