Free* in-store 1-2-1 Video Gait Analysis – no appointment is required
Running shoes – how do you know which one is for you? Do you go for the same as your mate down the club because they are faster than you, do you choose the ones you like the colour of or do you try to get the optimum blend of cushioning and support for your unique running style.
The wrong choice can cause all sorts of problems and there are hundreds of different running shoes available, and they are all slightly different. If your foot is not being supported properly your body will not absorb shock efficiently, and with up to four times your body weight going through your feet when you run this can cause an incredible amount of stress. This in turn can lead to problems not just with the feet but the legs, knees, hips and spine – in short the whole body.
So now you know that the wrong choice can lead to problems, how can you find the right choice?
Shoes for the way you run!
There’s also no need to book ahead, just drop by the stores.
All of our staff are trained to take many different variables into account to find the ideal shoe for you, including what we see when we look at your feet while standing and when you run on our in-store treadmill. We will also take into account your build, where you run and how far you run.
With over seventy different shoes to choose from, and eight+ brands, we can offer you a wide choice of suitable options and weather permitting you can then try them outside. Basically we will spend as long as it takes with you to find the right running shoe for you, to help minimise your risk of injury.
What do I need to do?
No appointment is required for our 1-2-1 Video Gait Analysis (allow 1 hour); there is always someone here to help you.
- We suggest you bring some old shoes with you (good or bad) that will help us a bit more
- If you can bring some shorts, or close fitting running tights with you (it’s helpful if we can see your knees whilst running.)
- Ladies, don’t forget your sports bra
But don’t worry if you can’t /don’t want to bring these things with you – we can lend you a pair of shorts. At busy times in-store we run a wait list to ensure everyone is seen in order.
