the FIT process and the TEAM that makes it HAPPEN
Step 1) Focus is on YOU
Any injuries or foot problems?
- Arch, heel or forefoot pain?
- Knee pain?
- Other injuries?
- Chronic blisters or blackened toenails?
- Do you wear orthotics or other inserts?
- Are you training for general fitness, 5K, 10K, or Marathon?
- What type of surface do you run on?
- What is your weekly mileage?
Step 2) Measurement
We measure your feet both un-weighted (seated) and weighted (standing) measurements as well as different point-to-point measurements.
Step 3) Gait Analysis
We observe as you run or walk a short distance on the treadmill. This helps us understand how you move and the biomechanics of your gait.
What we’re looking at:
- Body posture
- Body symmetry
- Phases of the gait cycle from heel strike to toe-off
Step 4) Fitting and Recommendations
Based on our findings, we will bring out the shoes that may work best for you. We’ll carefully inspect the fit and watch as you run or walk in each shoe. We’ll discuss the options, provide you with our recommendations and answer any questions.
Step 5) Comfort and Feel
Now it’s your turn! Let us know how the shoe feels on your foot; if it feels great, you’re off and running!
