THE FITTING PROCESS
Step 1: Getting to Know You and Your Goals
The first part of our fitting process is getting your running/fitness background. Bring in your old shoes for us to look at, tell us about any related injuries you are currently experiencing or have in your history. Also tell us about what your next goal is so that we know exactly what the next step in your fitness is.
Step 2: The Initial Analysis
The second part of our fitting process is to see what your feet do in a natural setting. Get ready to walk for us barefoot and also do some balancing as we need to see how your foot is supporting your body. We will also do a measurement of your foot to make sure you are the correct size.
Step 3: 3D Foot Scan
We have updated our fitting process to now include a 3D Foot Scan of your feet thanks to Aetrex. The scan will take full measurements of your foot including length, girth, width, Arch and instep. Also it will do a pressure map to see where you are applying the most pressure on your feet.
Step 4: Video Analysis
The next part of our fitting process is utilizing all of the information we have gathered and grabbing a pair of neutral running shoes and then walking or running on the treadmill. During your time on the treadmill we will get a short 10-15 second video to see what your foot is doing in the shoe. Things we focus on here are the rate of pronation your foot is working at and what type of striker you are (ie: heel, mid-foot, forefoot).
Step 5: Shoe Fitting
The final part of our fitting process is the shoe fitting. We will bring out different shoes from various brands for you to try on. We want you to try each shoe out and suggest getting back on the treadmill or taking them out on the sidewalk for a quick spin. After you find the best feeling, most natural and comfortable shoe we will do a follow up video to make sure the shoe is working for your body.
