The Fit Process
Shoe Fit Process
At Philadelphia Runner, our objective is to meet your unique needs. Whether you're walking around your neighborhood or training for your first half-marathon, we customize each fitting through listening, using treadmill and video recording to conduct gait analysis, and trying on a few shoe options to help you select a comfortable shoe to meet your needs.
SPORTS BRA FITTINGS
No matter what your activity level is, we carry a wide range of sports bras - from Brooks, Nike, Under Armour, and more - to support you during every workout. Stop by any of our stores for a bra fitting and we'll help you find the perfect fit for yoga, running or CrossFit.
Finding a pair of compression socks, sleeves or even a knee brace that doesn't slide can be an intimidating process. By listening to your individual needs and using calf and foot measurements, we'll help you find the compression products that support you best.
Let me should be clear: I am not writing to help make your next race easy. Marathons are never easy. Do we not remember the story of Pheidippides? If not, look it up.
Eat right and you'll run better. It's that simple. Or is it?

Foot pain stinks, sometimes literally.
Whether you're a walker, runner or somewhere in between, chances are you spend a lot of time on your feet day to day and have experienced some type of foot pain.
How often do you think about your feet?
For being the base of every stride we take, way too many people barely pay any attention to their feet. Day after day, mile after mile, our feet propel and move us along.
