About Us

Amphibian King is a technical running shoe retailer with a passion for all things running.  We have taken two things that we love (running and chatting to our customers) and put them together!  We pride ourselves in delivering a superior customer service and uniquely specializes in technical running and triathlon products. Since opening in 2006 we have been innovators in introducing new and exciting technical products and brands to the Irish running market. We have stores located in Co Dublin and Co Wicklow and are proud to be an independent local retailer.  We are proud to have been the first retail store in Ireland to offer expert Gait Analysis to ensure that we help you find the right shoe for how your foot naturally functions. 

All our team members are keen runners and self confessed running shoe "geeks!"  We love nothing more than to talk to you about shoes and running.  

Damian McKeever (Founder and Chief Shoe Technician) 

Amphibian King is the brainchild of Damian McKeever.   After spending some time working in Auckland, New Zealand he decided to return to Ireland and was the first to bring the concept of using gait analysis in a retail setting. 

Damian loves all things swim, bike and run.  In 2000 he took part in his first charity Olympic distance triathlon in beautiful Brittas Bay in Wicklow.  He soon caught the bug and has evolved to participating in numerous Ironman events throughout Europe, marathon races and Breca Jersey. He is an almost daily sea swimmer and would give any challenge a go.
