SHOE FITTINGS

Based on arch type, cushioning level, and pronation style, shoes need to be fit or "matched" properly to specific feet.  Shoes have a finite life expectancy whether used or unused.  Under normal circumstances this means switching shoes every 300-500 miles or about 6 months of consistent wear.  If you work, laugh, play, and also run in shoes, this timeframe can be very different.  

I.e. Standing on your feet for 4 hours a day without any running = 6 month replacement time

Having good shoes for general conditioning and not just running is as essential as having shoes dedicated for running.  If you're trying to squat, do plyos, or accelerations, you are at higher risk of injury in unfitted and worn shoes.​

 

COMMUNITY FITTING 

Intimidated by "serious runners?"  Most serious runners started their training to lose weight, support a cause, or just be more social.  Serious running does not equal fast.

 

  • The "serious runner" is the runner who runs once a week consistently.

  • The "serious runner" is the runner who plays sports like soccer, football, lacrosse, baseball, basketball, and volleyball.
  • The "serious runner" is the runner who encourages others to begin & enjoy running

  • The "serious runner" is the runner who strives to use running to support the community
