Fit Process: What to Expect

Welcome to the Fleet Feet Nation!

When you come to Fleet Feet Redding, our well-trained team will take you through our FIT process. They will evaluate and properly fit you for footwear, sports bras, and the necessary equipment to achieve your fitness goals. All evaluations start with taking two measurements of the feet, un-weighted and weighted, using the brannock device. Next, we do a gait analysis by watching our guests run in a neutral shoe. We combine this information to give our guests the best experience and options in footwear for their feet no matter the issue!

Our team will spend some time getting to know you and your needs. They will take a number of foot measurements and evaluate your biomechanics. Based on what we see, we will present you with a shoe (plus socks and inserts if necessary) that we believe will perfectly match you biomechanical needs. We will watch you run or walk in the shoe and evaluative your gait to make sure the shoe provides the appropriate support and cushioning. If necessary, we will show you other options and choices that would work for you and all that’s left is for you to decide which option feels the best.

What to Bring

  • Your current athletic shoe so that we can evaluate the wear patterns
  • Any orthotics or insoles you are using (or have been prescribed by a physician) in order for us to assess their impact on your gait and make sure they will fit in the new shoe

*We recommend you have at least 30 minutes available for your first visit to complete the process and ensure a proper fit.
