I rate Runner's Need in Holborn. Never seems to be excessively overrun, regardless of when you go.
I've used Run And Become twice, admittedly years ago, and both times was kept waiting for an age, which baffled me because the shop wasn't that busy.
On the second occasion I was in dire need of a pair of track spikes for a league fixture the following day (my old pair had been mysteriously nicked the previous weekend), and ended up just going with the first pair I tried. The girl looking after me had no advice or guidance to provide, and I was so bored by this point that I was just grateful to get out of there with a pair that fitted me.
I have heard no end of good things about them, however, so maybe I just caught them on a couple of bad days. It has put me off going back, mind.
