The Perfect Ride For Every Stride

Every gait is unique. Your left and right foot may be slightly different sizes or arch types. Limb alignment is a major contributing factor to our footwear category. These are all factors that we take into consideration when consulting with you to find the proper footwear for your activity, intensity, and volume.

Did you know?

80% of the population is wearing the WRONG shoe! The wrong shoe (size, style, type, or category) can increase your potential for injury, or worse—aggravate the one you already have. At Sneaker Factory Running Centers, getting the right shoe is essential to maintaining healthy and active lifestyle. We have developed the Factory Fit process to help assure you are in the 20% of the population wearing the proper shoe!

1. Personal Profile

We will take a detailed personal history, and have a conversation with you. What is the purpose of these shoes, past injuries, goals, and activity volume/intensity. These are all helpful in helping us determine your needs.

2. Gait Analysis

Next we will watch you move and determine your limb alignment. The body and arch in motion and your limb alignment tells us a lot about how much support your foot and body will need to keep you exercising healthfully.

3. Foot Measurement & Scanning

We begin by measuring your foot by hand to assure you are in the proper size and width. Next we use a 3D foot scan to assess your foot/arch shape, arch depth and height, and pressure distribution on the bottom of your foot. Your foot scan will be used to determine footwear's cushion and stability level as well as determine which insole type will be best suited for your foot.

4. Shoe Selection

We will select shoes that are best suited to you based on your activity, foot type, and gait needs. We stock 60+ different footwear models and will select the ones that will best suit your individual needs. Once trying them on, we will check the fit and width to ensure they are correct.

5. Test Drive and Feedback

We welcome all our customers to take the selected shoes for a test drive, either in the store on the treadmill or outside on the sidewalk (when the weather allows). We want your feedback. Do you prefer the softer or firmer underfoot feel? Shoe feels to heavy or flexible? What feedback is your foot and body giving you? We want to know so we can dial in the fit process even further!

6. Trial Period

We allow all purchases to be tested at home for a period of 14 days. Run in them. Take them to the gym. An interval session at the track. Should you have any issues, give us a call or stop in and we will exchange them or provide a store credit to you - no questions asked. We only as that you keep the box and receipt.
