Fitting Process

The Run Specialty Store Advantage

One of the distinct advantages in shopping at many running specialty stores is the ability to have a shoe fit to your specific needs. At Run Hub Northwest we believe this is a critical part of the service we provide for customers. We have collaborated with the Bowerman Sports Science Center and Tensegrity Physical Therapy to design a process to analyze the gait and foot strike of each customer. We ask customers to walk or run on a treadmill while recording the motion with 120 fps slow motion video. We may do this several times with various shoes or even barefoot. In the process we allow the customer to view their gait and foot strike while we explain what we see and then properly fit the customer in the correct type of shoe. While this is not a fool-proof process, it does make the chances of finding a shoe that works really well for each customer. There is NO FEE for this service.
