It’s About More Than Shoes
Our fit process is about a lot more than just shoes. It’s about getting to know you, your feet, and your goals so that we can find the perfect fit. We build relationships so we can address your needs (and get to know each other!). This begins with a discussion about what you’re looking for in a shoe and how you plan to use your shoes. Are you a walker? A runner? Or maybe someone that needs a comfy shoe for work, or help getting over a nagging injury. We have helped every type of customer imaginable, so don’t worry!
Foot and Gait Analysis
After getting to know you, we want to get to know your feet. Every staff member at the store is trained to analyze your gait to help determine the best shoe for you. We watch the way you walk and determine how your foot is moving and behaving. In addition to this, we have an Aetrex Albert foot scanner that enables us to dive deeper into how your feet work. By using Albert, we get detailed measurements and can view both a 3D model as well as a pressure map of your feet. Albert can oftentimes help us figure out where the root of shoe-trouble may lie. Albert also enables us to custom fit a shoe to your unique foot based on the dimensions of your feet.
Once we have an idea of what kind of shoe might be best for you, the fun begins! We head to the back to pull shoes that we think will be your new favorite. We carry the best brands in running and walking shoes. We’ll bring a few out for you to try and let you take them for a spin around the block. However long it takes, we’re with you until we find the perfect fit.
At Runner’s Edge, we do a lot more than just run, So much so, we like to emphasize that we are #MoreThanRun. We are a community of walkers, hikers, gym goers, pickle ball players, hunters, people who work on their feet all day, and more. No matter your size, shape, goals, or activity, we’re here for you. However you move, we want to help you find the shoes for your lifestyle. We are #MoreThanRun.
Wait, what happens if you get home only to realize that your shoes aren’t what you expected? Don’t worry! We have a no-hassle, satisfaction guarantee. Bring your shoes back and we’ll work with you again to make sure we find that perfect shoe. We want you, and your feet, to be happy. We’ll do whatever it takes to make sure you’re happy from the feet up!
We are very proud to work closely with many podiatrists and physical therapists in western Montana. Every day we help customers that are referred to us to find shoes that will aid in their recovery from injury, surgery, or other health issues. Medical professionals in town know about our fit process, and we’re honored to have their trust in helping you get back on your feet.
“I began buying trail running shoes at Runner’s Edge at their initial location on Main Street. Twenty years later Runner’s Edge remains my go to running store. As a Runner’s Edge Events sponsor and a physical therapist, I recommend Runner’s Edge to my patients because of their professionalism, knowledge, and customer service. Buy local. Support Runner’s Edge and all they do to keep the Missoula community active.”
