In my job as the president of the Running Network, I gave Richie Woodworth, the President of Saucony their awards from the 2001 Fall Shoe Review, the 2011 XC Racing Review and the Youth Running Shoe Review. Richie, a long time veteran of the industry, spoke about innovation and the need for innovation in the highly competitive running footwear business!
Woodworth speaks for many in the industry: It is a business that most who are involved love, and they do things, like sponsor races, athletes and make racing shoes, where, it is not always obvious how it helps the business. But, any company that is in the performance running business supports our sport!
Thanks to Richie Woodworth and thanks to the Shoe Addicts for the video interview.
