The Fleet Feet Sports FITLOSOPHY™ is our commitment to the concept of a proper FIT in all aspects of our lives - from our commitment to helping you find the proper FIT for your running shoes, to assisting you in determining how running, walking, or an active lifestyle fits into your life. Simply stated, FITLOSOPHY™ is our FIT Philosophy and our approach to everything we do. Our process begins by ensuring that runners and walkers of all abilities (and ages) are fit with the proper footwear, sports bras and technical apparel to meet their individual needs.
We provide the complete FIT. We can also help you find solutions for inserts, socks, and sports bras! Once all of that is taken care of, don't forget about apparel! Wearing the right apparel can make your fitness experience a lot more enjoyable and successful!
Step One: Explanation of the Personal F.I. T. Process
Every process has a beginning point, fitting our customers begins with “hello” and an explanation of the Personal F.I.T. Process.
Step Two: Getting to Know You
We take time to ask questions about your current activity, such as how often you run, how far and if you have a goal in mind. We also discuss any existing or past injuries and talk about the footwear you currently use.
Step Three: Measurement
Several measurements of each foot help us determine proper sizing. We analyze both unweighted (seated) and weighted (standing) measurements as well as different point-to-point measurements.
We aren’t doctors and don’t pretend to be, but we will take a look at your feet for signs that will help us fit you properly and determine any special needs.
Step Four: Gait Analysis
We want to see your feet. We’ll observe as you run or walk a short distance. This helps us understand how you move and the biomechanics of your gait.
Step Five: 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 Six: The Decision
This one is all you since you are the only person who knows how the shoes actually feel.
Step Seven: Ready to Go
Now that you’ve made a decision, we’ll talk about how to properly adjust to your new shoes, help with any other product needs you may have and make sure you’re ready to get the best results!
