3-2-Run Fit Process
Researching running gear can be overwhelming with the sea of options available, from high-tech shoes to unconventional socks. Finding the right gear shouldn't feel like a gamble or require ordering countless pairs online. That's where 3-2-RUN! Steps in.
3-2-RUN! We've simplified the process. Instead of a hit-or-miss approach, our experts use a tailored 3-step questionnaire and a two-fold foot analysis-static and dynamic to match you with ideal shoe options. Say goodbye to the uncertainty and hello to the perfect fit.
Three sets of questions around the three most important running items - shoes, socks, and insoles.
We start by learning about you and your running experience. Are you getting back into it after some time away? First time lacing up a pair? Training for your next marathon? We want to dive into your past, present and future running plans to identify what items will work best for you. Understanding you as an athlete helps us find the right combination of gear to make you fall in love with running.
Those blisters might not be because of your shoes. Did you know that cotton socks absorb moisture, but they do a terrible job of keeping your feet dry? You may be getting blisters due to a build-up of sweat and friction in your shoes.
Arch or heel pain? Your shoe may be fine, but your foot might not be properly supported. An insole is a great way to compliment your shoe, giving you a much more custom-like feel.
Asking the right questions is important, but it's not the only thing we do. Each of our Fit Specialists have received months of training to accurately conduct a static and dynamic analysis of your feet. Our shops are equipped with the latest 3D digital foot mapping scanner and software that measures your foot length, width, and arch height. It takes that data and creates a rendering of your foot for us to analyze, along with recommending an insole to provide additional support and cushion.
As an additional option, Fitstation has the capability of creating custom 3D-printed insoles based on your scan results, giving your feet the proper support it needs.
The dynamic analysis takes us to the treadmill, where a Fit Specialist will watch you walk or run in a test shoe to determine what type of footstrike you have. After sharing the recording with you and finding which catergory of shoe will work best (neutral, slight, or moderate stability, or motion control), we'll jump in the back and grab a handful of shoes that we feel will be the right fit.
Now it's up to you! Test ride as many shoes as you'd like until you find a shoe you love. We'll start with at least three options to gain a sense of what type of cushion and fit you like, then bring out additional styles based on your feedback.
Enjoy the cushion but feel like you need a little more arch? We'll try an insole to improve the fit. Let our experts show you everything we have in-store to make your next run your best!
