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.
