Using our exclusive Footwear FIT Process, our Fleet Feet team members guide runners and walkers through an extensive fitting process that ensures a proper fit. Below is step-by-step walk-through of the process that we use to make sure you are fitted into the best shoes for you. No appointment is necessary, but please allow extra time when you come in to get fitted.
THE PERSONAL F.I.T. PROCESS
Step One: Welcome and Explanation of the Personal F.I.T. Process
Fitting our customers begins with a hello and an explanation of the Footwear FIT Process
Step Two: Getting to Know You
We take time to ask questions about your current fitness activities and goals. 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 record both unweighted (seated) and weighted (standing) measurements as well as different point to point measurements on your personalized FIT card.
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’ll bring out a test shoe and observe as you run or walk a short distance. This helps us determine 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 the proper fitting of other sock and apparel products that can help you achieve your fitness goals.
