What is the FIT Process?
Fleet Feet Sports Hoboken is dedicated to ensuring that runners and walkers of all levels are fit with gear that meets their particular physical needs, allowing them to exercise comfortably and injury free. The Personal F.I.T. (Fit Intensive Training) Process helps us do just that.
The Personal Footwear 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’ve made a decision, we want to make sure that you know we are committed to taking care of your additional or future needs.
