  • We ask how you’ll use your shoes: sport, surfaces and conditions, your background and goals.
  • We examine your old shoe wear patterns and ask your injury history.
  • We watch you walk, analyzing your gait, assessing your foot type and biomechanics.
  • The FitStation may come into play here!

  • A great fit is a joint effort. We know how crucial it is to ask good. questions, but especially to listen.
  • Comfort is king. We will tweak all the details until we get it right.
  • Need special sizing, narrow or extra widths? We have the best selection.
  • Your foot, the sock, insert/orthotic and shoe is a system that should feel and work harmoniously. We have the experience, knowledge, products and, yes, even the patience to find that harmony.

  • We help people find shoes that excite them.
  • We help seasoned runners find shoes they can depend on.
  • Our staff loves running and we want you to as well!

  • Make sure you feel you have made a wise decision and “can’t wait to go run (hike, play, etc.)”!

Superfeet Fit Station

We were the first store in the country to debut the Ferndale based Superfeet FitStation- a setup designed by Superfeet and Hewlett-Packard that will make a 3D scan of your foot, and record pressure distribution during the gait cycle. Excited and honored to have this technology in the store as we refine and build on it over time!

This will give us a better, more accurate understanding of the shape and dimensions of your feet and how they move in order to better select the right pair of shoes for you.

Down the road it will help us to further improve the shoe selection process. In addition, the 2D and 3D data will allow us to order custom 3D printed orthotics from Superfeet and several months down the road be able to order custom made footwear.



Our Staff is Friendly and Full of Knowledge
