About Us


At Amphibian King we are passionate about all things running. Established in the summer of 2006, we were the first Store in Ireland to offer expert Gait Analysis. This ensures that we help you find the right shoe for how your foot naturally functions.

The team at Amphibian King are all keen runners or triathletes. Between us all we have taken part in 5K runs (or walks!) up to Ironman events. All of our staff are qualified in Gait Analysis and together with their running experience and product knowledge are here to help fit you into the right pair of shoes not the most expensive pair of shoes.

The Team at Amphibian King

Damian McKeever -

Damian took part in his first Olympic distance triathlon in 2000. Although finding it tough, the bug had bitten and so did his running and triathlon "career". Throughout the years he has taken part in various events including Marathons and Ironman Triathlons. By his own admission, he would say that he is not the faster performer among his friends and colleagues but his love of running and triathlons has had him finish in the Dublin City and Auckland Marathons and also five Ironman Triathlons. It was whilst he was living in Auckland, NZ that he received training in Gait Analysis.

Gary Crossan - Ballymount Store Manager

Gary is an experienced runner and has won many titles in his time. He finished first 4 times at the National Marathon Championship, 1st place in the Connemara Ultra Marathon and has represented Ireland at the World and European Hill Running Championship. He is a modest man and his marathon PB is 2 hours 19. Gary is based in the Ballymount store.
