Digital Stride Analysis
As a specialty running store, we care that you are in the right shoes that could help eliminate aches and pains or prevent new ones. When you come to KC Running & Sports Medicine Store, shoe shopping is different. We help to find you the right kind of shoe through our digital stride analysis. This tells us what your feet are doing once they hit the ground. From this analysis, we select several shoes for you to try on and then you decide which ones feel the best. We have a 10 day return policy for shoes. Take them home and wear them inside (even on a treadmill!) and if you are unhappy with your selection, bring them back and we will refit you.
A more detailed description of the digital stride analysis:
1. We have you walk/run on the treadmill without your shoes on. We record this and then replay it back to you so you can see exactly what we are talking about. This is how our sales people decide which shoes to bring out for you to try on.
2. We measure your foot to make sure that you are in the correct size. For running shoes, you will be put in at least a half size bigger than you measure, if not a full size bigger. This is to give you some room for your feet to swell and move as you exercise without hitting the end of the shoe (which could cause injury or blisters).
3. You try on several pairs of shoes to determine which ones feel the best. If you don’t like the color of the shoe that is the most comfortable, no problem! We’ll order the color you like (it usually takes about a week for the shoe to come in)
4. You are off and exercising!!
