We Listen

To ensure you leave The Running Company with the right pair of runners, we first want to learn about you and anything that is relevant in your running and training history. Have you had any past injuries, or are you suffering from a current setback? Perhaps you have recently seen a physio or podiatrist and want to share their feedback.

We Observe

Our experienced staff will then pop you barefoot on the treadmill to perform the digital gait analysis. This enables us to clearly see your foot, ankle and lower limb motion and demonstrates the level of support and function you require from a running shoe. From this, we can help you find the right shoe for your particular style of running.

We Advise

Based on your barefoot gait analysis, we will suggest a number of running shoe options and allow you to trial them on our in-store treadmill. Once again, analysing the results and asking for your feedback on comfort, fit and function. This entire process will ensure you get the right shoe, help you run better and stave off injury.
