Professional Shoe Fittings

Just like each individual is unique, so to are our feet. We take this into consideration when fitting shoes and recommend shoes to accommodate your specific width, length, stability and comfort level. Pronation and supination are very common biomechanical abnormalities of which our professionals are trained to identify. For more information on pronation versus supination see our treatments and conditions page. If you are a severe pronator or supinator it is very important to choose the right shoe as many shoes can aggravate the problem. We carry shoes that are designed specifically to accommodate or assist in correcting these issues.
