Did you know?
- 80% of the population are wearing the wrong shoe
- The wrong shoe (incorrect size, style, or type) will only increase your risk of injury, or worse – aggravate one you already have;
- At Fleet Feet Sports, our FITlosophy has always been to pay special attention to each customer's needs to fit the right shoe. That is what we do best. The Personal F.I.T. (Fit Intensive Training) Process helps us do just that.
Using our innovative Personal F.I.T. Process Fleet Feet Sports team members guide runners and walkers through an extensive fitting process that ensures a proper fit. Below is a summary of the process each team member uses to make sure you are fit into the best shoe for you. No appointment is necessary, but please allow extra time when you come in to get fit.
Our Personal Fit Process:
Step One: Getting to Know You
We listen carefully to your needs, take into consideration any aches and pains, and evaluate your experience with your current footwear.
Step Two: Measurement
Several measurements of each foot help us determine proper sizing. We record both un-weighted (seated) and weighted (standing) measurements as well as different point to point measurements. We will take a look at your feet for signs that will help us fit you properly and determine any special needs.
Step Three: Gait Analysis
We’ll observe your foot in motion. This helps us determine how you move and the biomechanics of your gait.
Step Four: 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 Five: The Decision
This one is all you since you are the only person who knows how the shoes actually feel.
Step Six: Ready to Go
Now that you have made a decision, we want to make sure that you know we are committed to taking care of your additional or future needs.
