The Runner’s Edge
A great fitting shoe is important for athletic and running success. The right footwear and equipment can reduce the chance of injuries such as shin splints, heel pain, sore knees, sore calves, and a sore back. All these can stop your running in its tracks. With 25 years of experience fitting runners and athletes at all levels, The Runner’s Edge knows why the ideal fit is important to running success.
Our Tru-Fit system begins by obtaining your personal running history, plans and goals including frequency, experience, previous equipment and injury history. We use this information to understand the basic running components that make up the individual runner’s profile to guide us to the best product suggestions for each individual runner.
Our process has been refined over 25 years to provide a smooth and easy 6-step fitting process for every runner. We question, measure, evaluate your foot, make a product recommendation, evaluate the product and assist in the product selection. We offer elementary video analysis of your foot mechanics and form to further enhance our understanding of you, the runner.
At The Runner’s Edge, we offer this superior fitting with every shoe purchase.
For runners looking for an even more in-depth fitting experience we offer 2 additional fitting experiences to make your running better.
This enhanced fitting process incorporates all of our Tru-Fit process as well as the Brooks Run Signature technology which adds the newest running software technology available to enable us to add a set of benchmark data of your own running foot, ankle and knee movements.
