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.
