Fitting Process

Fitting Process
1. We Analyze Your Foot Type

Do you need running shoes, walking shoes, shoes for going to the gym, shoes to help aches and pains, or something else?  Whatever brought you into the store, whatever you’re looking for, we’ll determine the best shoes for you.

2. Foot and Arch Scan

We’ll measure your feet to get the correct width, length, find whether you have high or low arches, can help find the right solution for plantar fasciitis and much more.

3. Slow Motion Video Analysis

You’ll walk or run for a bit or need a good pair of shoes for work and we’ll record it to take a look at how your feet fall—pronated or supinated—and how our shoes can help you correct any aberrant form.
