RUN SHOES

FOOTWEAR

Shoe Fit:
Our professional staff - led by Alfred Olivetti - provides a thorough assessment of your biomechanics, running history/needs, ailments, and foot type in determining the correct footwear for your individual needs.

We have a tried and tested methodology for fitting running / walking shoes. We focus our fitting on two principles - FIT and FUNCTION (see below for an overview of these methods). Over our 15 years in the running industry, we have honed our skills and stand ready to service you with the ideal pair of shoes.

Our Methods

FIT : Your shoes NEED to fit your feet well - otherwise, you simply wont wear them. Improper fitting shoes can lead to your feet burning or going numb. It can also cause blisters and hot spots. All of which are not good and ultimately prevent you from continuing your healthy behaviour. So, we focus on your FIT:

  • First, we look at your feet - we poke your feet - and, probably make fun of anything wacky we see.
  • Second, we take a impression of your feet so we can have a second vantage of your feet.
  • We are noting anything that may impact the way a shoe fits - notably, bone structural issues such as bunions, hamer toes, missing toes, wide feet, flat feet, ... anything.

Based on the shape of your feet and any structural issues we see - we fit you properly into a shoe that accommodates and supports your feet.

FUNCTION : Your shoes MUST function correctly - this is our most important responsibilty. Proper functioning shoes act as a tool to prevent injury and facilitate your performace. Your shoes should account for your foot strike, biomechanics, training regimine, body type, and history of ailments. Toward this goal, we focus on FUNCTION:

  • First, we discuss with you your running / walking goals and current training habits.
  • Second, we perform a dynamic running / walking assessment. We have you run / walk - and, we video your movement. This assessment anables us to determine your foot strike (pronation pattern) - and, other relevant biomechanical issues - and ultimately helps us recommend a shoe that provides the proper cushion and/or stability.
