The Fleet Feet Sports FITLOSOPHY™ is our commitment to the concept of 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. For us, FIT is everything.
We provide the complete FIT. We can also help you find solutions for inserts, socks, and sports bras!
Wearing the right apparel and gearing up with the right accessories can make your fitness experience a lot more enjoyable and successful!
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 unweighted (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. The overall shape of your foot will often times tell us the most about which shoes would be a good fit.
Step Three: Gait Analysis
We will 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 will discuss options, provide you with our recommendations and answer any questions. We want to know what you think, tell us how you feel!
Step Five: The Decision
This one is all you! Since you are the only person who knows how the shoes actually feel, you get to pick which shoe you take home with you.
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.
