Our Fit Processes

Where Fit, Function, Feel and Fashion Come Together

Footwear Fit

Footwear FitThe foot is a marvelous structure.  It has 28 bones (including the sesamoids), 33 joints, 112 ligaments, plus tendons, nerves and blood vessels that work in unison to support, balance and propel your body.  Getting fitted with proper footwear is the most important step in preventing injury and enhancing your running or walking experience. Whether you are just beginning a walking program or training for your umpteenth marathon - we can help.

The two primary components of proper footwear selection are Fit and Ride (aka, Function).  Fit involves choosing footwear that matches the size and shape of your feet.  Ride involves choosing footwear that minimizes unwanted loads and torques.  To determine your Fit needs we measure both your feet, assess their shape, and consider any trouble spots we identify during the interview process or the inspection of your bare feet.  Ride needs are determined by analyzing your running or walking style and carefully considering your training loads and injury history.  Using all of the  information gathered, we utilize our extensive training and our proprietary Footwear Identification Tool (FIT) application to make individualized footwear recommendations.  To ensure that our recommendations meet your needs, we’ll carefully inspect the fit of each style and assess their function as you run or walk in them.  After we are both confident that we have identified two or three footwear solutions that meet your fit and function needs, it is up to you to choose the one that best meets your feel and fashion needs.

Bra Fit

Bra FitWearing a well-fitted, technical sports bra is as essential to a woman athlete as wearing a pair of well-fitted shoes, yet 80% of women are wearing the wrong size bra.  In addition to footwear fittings, our female Fit Professionals offer professional sports bra fittings.  Each fittings starts with an interview about your particular needs.  Two quick measurements are then taken and the information gathered is used to recommend appropriate styles from our carefully curated bra wall.  Our bra wall ranges in sizes from 32A-48DD and includes styles with varying control, coverage, closure, and adjustability characteristics.  All of our bras are made of fabrics that wick away moisture, are highly breathable in areas where it matters most, and are designed not to irritate sensitive areas.
