When you visit Capital City Runners, we want to ensure that every customer gets that personal attention they deserve. Our fit process starts with a one-on-one consultation with one of our expert staff where we go over past/present running history and potential injuries, and discuss some basics of running. From there, we have a 3 step process which includes:
The first step is looking at the feet. All feet are different so we like to start our fit process by having you step ontoour iStep scanner which is a comprehensive foot digital analyzing system. The iStep scanner is the most comprehensive foot scanner on the market with over 3700 sensors which scan your foot looking at center of gravity, pressure points, arch type, length, and width of your feet.
From there, we have our customers run or walk for a short period on our in-store treadmill where we watch frame-by-frame video footage and analyze your running gait. During this free gait analysis, we ensure YOU see what we see and and fully understand what's going on with your biomechanics, making iteasier for you to understand why a certain category of footwear will be more appropriate for you than another.
The last step is the most fun. Given what we learned in the first 2 steps, we bring out a few different shoes that we feel will be best for your needs. Since everyone's feet are different, your input is very important during because this step is very much about the fit, feel and ride of the shoe. What feels great on one person's foot might not on yours. We always recommend that our guests run or walk in each pair of shoes they try on and even encourage them to take the shoe out onto the side walk so they can truly experience the shoe on the same surface most of their running is done.
Our main priority at Capital City Runners is to ensure each one of our valued customers receives the ultimate service and leaves the store very confident they are in the best shoe for their individualized needs.
