Foot Traffic has been locally owned and operated for over 18 years with 5 different locations including Freemont, Downtown Portland, Sellwood, Cedar Hills and Vancouver.  Foot Traffic set out to be more than Oregon’s premiere running & walking shoe stores and was founded on the principle that a small business has a far more salient purpose than simply selling great running shoes, apparel & accessories. Their commitment is to the betterment of runners and walkers and the community. They definitely live their mission hosting free runs weekly at all their stores, directing three world-class running events, hosting numerous training clinics and donating to various local schools, teams and non-profits.

KICK-EEZ® is much more than a company to their President, Willard M. Latimer (a World War II Veteran), and his family; it’s a lifestyle! Willard, who is in his 90s, began his hunting career as a young boy learning from his Grandfather, Samuel M. Latimer. He has passed on his love of the sport to all his family; in fact, he is now sharing his love with the third generation of his own family! Since hunting has always been one of the most important things in Willard’s life, the beginning of KICK-EEZ® was a natural phenomenon. Willard was golfing one day in 1985 with some friends at his local golf course in Chehalis, Washington, and a friend pulled a piece of Sorbothane® out of his pocket and asked what he thought it could be used for. Without hesitation, Willard answered, “It sure would make a good gun pad!” KICK-EEZ® was created the very next year!
