Getting You Into The Best Running and Walking Shoes for You.
Having the right fit running and walking shoes matters. The Fit Process begins with a conversation. Our Professional Shoe Fitters start by asking you about several factors that may influence your shoe choice such as what activity do you plan to use these shoes for, the experience you have had with shoes you have been wearing, we look at the wear patterns of shoes you may bring in, and talk about any physical pain you have been experiencing when you are active.
Next, we take you through a gait analysis. This means we will have you take off your shoes and roll up your pant legs so we can get a good look at how your feet and ankles work together. Yes, you heard right, we want to see your feet!
We will have you walk across the store and back taking note of your arch height, ankle position, and how they work together as you walk. This process will show us what shoes will work best for you.
You do not need an appointment for a walk-in shoe fitting during store hours.
After the fit process is complete, when you are confident in a pair of shoes that you have selected, we recommend every customer try the shoes out at home and be sure they are the correct shoes for them. We understand that a new pair of shoes may feel different once you take them home.
We try to avoid this different as a bad sensation in our efforts working with you the first time you visit the store. However, we understand that you do not know how a shoe will work until you do your activity in them.
Our guarantee is that if you are not happy with your shoes; bring them back to the store within 30 days of purchase. We will take from the experience that you had with the initial pair and work with you to find a different pair of shoes.
"My wife dreads the shoe buying experience as she injured her foot in the past and, unfortunately, is quite self-conscious about trying on shoes to identify the perfect pair that meets her requirements. When we arrived Scott helped me find a pair of shoes for myself (the original mission). It was then that my wife decided to find shoes for herself as well (I suspect it was because she sensed the competency of the salesman). This is where Scott really began to shine. In very short order it was clear to see that he is knowledgeable, empathetic, patient, and gregarious. The time and care he took to help my wife find a pair of shoes for walking and another for running was remarkable. She was so quickly put at ease and, after a while, found the shoes that met her needs. You should know that words escape me in relating to you how much that meant to me.
Have a great day – a VERY satisfied customer."
