“If the shoe fits… wear it.” But how do you know if the shoe truly fits? Easy, get fit at Potomac River Running and find the perfect fit for your feet. Never been fit before, no problem, here’s what to expect…
First Time Fitting…
So you decided to get fit for a pair of shoes… Now what?!? Well you can either hop in the car or run or walk to our nearest store, no appointment needed! Or if you prefer to schedule an appointment you can do that too!
First, we will do a quick Q&A with you! Think of it as an interview all about your feet and some about what you plan to do with your shoes! We will also discuss any aches and pains you have had in the past or currently have!
Next, we will take a look at your feet including the shape, the size, and all that jazz. And don’t worry if your jazz is well not all that jazzy! Bunions, corns, crusties, black and blues, and even that funky smell… we’ve seen it and smelt it all. No need to be embarrassed, in fact there is a good chance our staff have experienced some of the very same problems as you, just ask them! We may even have some helpful tips.
Then, we will dive into the gait analysis portion. Our team will take a close look at you as you walk, run, and move in a pair of neutral sneakers. After we do a short video of you moving, we will go over the results with you. This will help our team and you break down the shoe wall and select a few options for you to try on! That’s right now for the fun part… trying on shoes! After all that’s what you came for right?
Trying on shoes can be overwhelming especially when there are endless amounts to select from, but fear not! Our team can help you navigate the shoe wall and make smart choices to select from. Our team will bring out a few pairs of shoes for you to try. As you try them on you’ll want to focus on comfort, fit, and feel . It’s easy to get caught up in a color or brand but remember what’s most important is that you feel good in your shoes.
Once you’ve found a winner (or two or three!) you may want to consider adding on a few extra goodies to enhance the feel of your shoes. For example, try adding a pair of awesome performance socks or maybe you got the shoes now you want to get the gear too! Well whatever it is, our team can help you!
You just left the store and we can see it from a mile away… you got a little extra pep in your step! Awesomeness, that means you came, you saw, and you conquered the quest to find a great pair of shoes! But what happens next, well first you take your shoes out for a spin! Run,walk, hike, or even spin/bike… do whatever you do best in your shoes and then when they start to wear or you’ve put a number of miles on them, head back into the store and we can do it all over again! That simple! And if you found a pair you love so much, we can help you find them again because our team can take a look at your personal account. Just make sure you don’t go too long without seeing us… we recommend every 3-6 months depending on the use and miles logged before your next fitting.
