Running was created to provide NEW SOUL opportunities. David and Shona Jonson, founders of NEWSole Running, have an inborn desire to help people. They also noticed the growing need for a specialty running store in South Atlanta. David, a businessman, teacher, and coach, became frustrated with running injuries of himself and student athletes. He discovered the art of natural running, and it truly changed his life. Using natural running techniques, David was able to run pain-free for longer distances. He just couldn’t help himself - he began to teach and coach others about natural running and natural footwear. Soon, doors began to open, and the idea of NEWSole Running began to take hold. Much support and encouragement was offered by friends, family, and potential customers. Many prayers were answered, and NEWSole Running opened its doors.
David and Shona wanted NEWSole
Running to be a place where customers could find superior shoes, apparel, and accessories as well as expert advice, personalized gait analysis, and assistance in product selection.
