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.
If you're like me, you have your pair of go to shoes. The weapon of your choice. The specific brand and model of running shoes you've been using for the past several races. Those running shoes that fit the best. Maybe it's because of the soft heel landing, wider toe box or you just love the energy return you are getting from the shoes. You know the ones. You're probably wearing them right now because you just finished a nice tempo run. I'm a big believer in the old saying "if it's not broken, don't fix it". I think this goes also with running shoes. For many of us, we have that favorite pair.

The updated Brooks Ravenna 9 is a lot sleeker and lighter version than previous models. That said, it's still a springy and supportive shoe for runners wanting to energize their runs without sacrificing stability, support or speed.

You may be thinking to yourself, what's a buff and why should I own one (or more!)?
The term "buff" comes from the Spanish work for scarf: bufanda. Buffs are fabric tubes that are probably one of the most versatile pieces of gear out there.

Buffs are like are a secret weapon - one of those things you just have to have.
