Every customer that walks through our doors to buy a pair of shoes is assessed on their needs before we start throwing shoes at you to try.
Beginning with some background on your running journey, history of injuries (if any) and what the next few months of running holds for you.
We will then use our Footdisc to have a look at your arch type (medium, low, flat) and get you to perform some movements for us to help with our assessment. Now we’re ready to start recommending you some footwear! Normally thats the end of the process.
But not here at The Runner’s Gait.
Not all shoes are created equally and not all shoes fit each runner. That’s why we offer the option of Video Gait Analysis for customers that want a more scientific approach to their shoe selection.
We start off by getting you to hop on the treadmill barefooted so that we can establish a baseline for your individual biomechanics. After that, you can try up to 3 pairs of shoes of your choice, while we record and analyse you running in them.
We’ll do the analysis on the spot so that you have full information before making your selection. The main things we will look at are the amount of pronation, foot strike and whether there are any biomechanical issues that will potentially affect the choice of shoe.
It may seem like a lot of things to do just to buy a pair of shoes, but when you think about how much impact forces your body experiences when you run, we think its well worth it!
Each Basic Gait Analysis session lasts between 15-20min and costs $30. No appointments have to be made for the Basic Gait Analysis, but if you’re popping by on the weekend, just give us a call beforehand so we can be ready for you!
