You can also book an appointment for any of the weekdays we are open but this isn’t necessary, just be aware we will be operating a one customer (group) in the store at a time system.


Appointments will be 30 minutes slots, you can book multiple slots if you feel you may need longer.

We offer a full fitting service be it for your shoes or just as important if you’re a woman, your running bra!

Our 4 Step Fitting Process

1. We begin by discussing your running needs, goals and history. Getting to know what sort of running you do, what you’re looking to achieve over the next 12 months and the types of niggles and injuries you’ve suffered in the past lets us get a better understanding of what type of shoes will suit you best.

2. Next, we’ll take a look at your feet, looking for any features that may point towards you requiring a specific shoe type, be it a broad foot, low arch, flexible or stiff feet.


3. Now we’ll put you into a neutral shoe to perform a video gait analaysis, weather permitting we’ll do this outside as running on the road is a much more natural feeling, but if the UK weather is at it’s best then we’ll get you on our shop treadmill.

4. After the gait analysis and with what we’ve discussed, we’ll bring out a range of shoes that will be suitable for your feeet and running style. If you need a support shoe we’ll check this again with video analysis to ensure it’s giving you the correct level of support. But then the choice is up to you, we want you to feel comfortable, happy and confident in the shoes you choose to run in.
