Gait Analysis and Shoe Fit

The Runners Forum helped to pioneer gait analysis. When we started in 1978, product selection and the concept of a customized fit were in their infancy. We were the first in Indiana to offer gait analysis as part of the shoe fitting process!

Quite simply, gait analysis is the process of assessing a person's bio-mechanics while they walk or run. Through our decades of experience, we have found that the most accurate assessment of a person's gait occurs when they run on a natural surface, as you would be running outdoors.

Our experience enables us to accurately and quickly assess each customer's gait in real time. Our entire staff of participant athletes is trained in the gait analysis techniques that we have developed over the past 30 years.

In addition to your bio-mechanics, the Runners Forum staff takes into account the characteristics of your foot and the shape of your arch. Using this information, we will match you up to the right brands and shoe models for your specific needs. Our shoe inventory ranges from youth 1-6 and adult 5AA - 16EEEE.

The fitting process includes testing out different shoes so that we can see exactly how they match up to your specific requirements. Our experience and selection of the industry's leading brands ensures that your shoes will be optimally fit to meet your specific needs. Your satisfaction is guaranteed!
