Fleet Feet Sports Columbia is now featuring Waterman's Applied Science Products
As the temperatures continue to rise and more people begin to venture away from their treadmills to take to the roads of Columbia, Irmo and Lexington, it is important for them to be mindful of their exposure to the sun. Waterman's Applied Science Sun Protectant products cover our outdoor warriors from head to toe with Face Sticks, Lip Balm and Spray on Sunscreen. With products that range from SPF 18 to SPF 55, Fleet Feet and Waterman's can make sure the only burn you feel after your run is the burning of your muscles, and not your skin.
Swing by Fleet Feet today to pick up one of these new sun protectant products, or read more about Waterman's on our Featured Products Page
As a reminder, Fleet Feet Sports Columbia will be closed on Sunday March 31, 2013 in observation of the Easter Holiday. We will return to regular business hours on Monday April 1, 2013.
