Our comprehensive shoe fitting process includes a Free Video Gait Analysis, which assesses body mechanics while running or walking on the treadmill, leading to a proper shoe recommendation.
Running and walking shoes are designed to accommodate a wide variety of foot shapes and sizes. A person's body type and biomechanics can have a big effect on determining the type of running shoe that will work best for them.
The fitting process is, therefore, very crucial. Our knowledgeable staff will work one-on-one with you to recommend specific products that provide maximum comfort and protection, allowing you to run or walk more efficiently and avoid common injuries.
How our Fit Process works:
We will start by learning about your running history, current goals and ailments.
Next, we will look at the structure of your arch and measure the length and width of your foot. The arch plays a very important role in the mobility of your foot during the weight-bearing phase of your gait cycle.
You are then invited to walk or run on the treadmill where we can perform a brief video gait analysis. By running or walking at a moderate pace and observing your foot strike, we can determine what is happening upon impact. We will review this information with you, in slow motion, in order to obtain direction on what type of footwear will be best suited to your natural biomechanics.
Finally we are ready to have you try on shoes that will be perfectly matched from our assessment. We love providing options and have many footwear styles and brands to choose from. We encourage you to shop and compare.
We want you to feel great about your purchase and the advice we give you. If you are not happy with your purchase for any reason, bring it back within 30 days with the receipt for your choice of an exchange or store credit. Cash refunds may be provided only on items that are not worn outside and that are in new condition. No returns or exchanges on sale or clearance items, nutrition, gift cards or specially ordered products that we do not keep in stock.
