This section provides the opportunity to have a Q&A with the Good Sports staff. Every season we are educated by our vendors on every product we carry in order to provide the best possible service to our clients. Being outdoor enthusiasts ourselves, we have personal experience with the product as well. These are our educated opinions, so if you wish to suggest any information, feel free. This is an open forum for all outdoor enthusiasts. Your questions will be answered within 48 hrs.
What are your best running shoes?--(Kim from Boerne,TX)
There really isn't a "BEST" shoe, because what is best for me is not necessarily what's best for you. I know that sounds like a standard answer, but I will tell you that when you come into Good Sports, we will professionally fit you & make sure you get the best shoe for your personal needs.
Do you sell children's ski/snowboarding clothing?--(Amanda from the Northside San Antonio, TX)
YES!! During the season (Late Oct. to Mid April) we carry a very wide selection of children's ski clothing from Spyder, The North Face, Patagonia, Obermeyer, Volcom, Burton and more.
Where do you go hiking around San Antonio and South Texas?--(Todd from Alamo Heights, TX)
We get asked on the regular, by locals and visitors, this question. The Answer? Enchanted Rock, Lost Maples, Big Bend, O.P. Schnabel Park, etc... Check out this site to find maps and distances to Hikes within 60 miles.
Are there any Ski Clubs here in South Texas?--(James from San Antonio, TX)
Yes. Check out this site for clubs within the South Texas Region.
What are the best products for re-waterproofing Gore-Tex rain jackets?--(Randy from Germantown, PA)
My favorite is McNett ReviveX. It's easy to use: First, just wash your jacket in warm water. (Tips: close all the zippers and Velcro tabs to prevent abrasion to the fabric and for soap, use ReviveX Synthetic Fabric Cleaner.) Then, make sure the jacket is thoroughly rinsed, and hang it wet on a clothes hanger. Hold the bottle 5-8 inches away from the jacket and spray using long even strokes. Pay special attention to the shoulder area. Finally, toss the jacket in the dryer (alone) and tumble on medium heat for a full hour. Your jacket will bead up water like it was new again. As soon as you notice that water no longer beads, repeat the process.
