Our analysis is informative, easy, and free! No appointment necessary.


Our process takes every guest in our store through some basic running mechanic techniques. When you leave the store, we want you to feel like you received the best fit possible and learned more about yourself in the process.


STEP 1 - We Get to Know You!

Our knowledgeable staff will ask you an array of questions to pinpoint your specific needs. What are the shoes going to be used for? Which surfaces will the shoes be used on? Do you have any prior injuries or other special needs for your shoes? What is your exercise regimen like?


STEP 2 - We Analyze Your Gait And Learn About Your Biomechanics.

At CCR we use an ipad based video gait analysis system to help us understand your gait cycle. With this setup we can view, frame by frame, video of your stride through the gait cycle. This helps us to recommend the best footwear choices for you based on your rate of pronation and foot-type while letting you view the footage as well. We offer a variety of brands that cover the spectrum of fit and degree of stability (neutral, support and control). Overall, this step makes it easier for you to understand why you would need one particular style/model over another.​


STEP 3 - Test Ride

In this step, we will fit you in the proper shoe size as well as offer a selection of shoes from various brands. You will then have the opportunity to take the shoes on a test run/walk on the treadmill, throughout the store or on the sidewalk.  


STEP 4 - The Decision

We will listen to your feedback after the test ride. Our discussion will move to specifics such as your fit preferences, your opinion on feel and the overall ride. Then, we work together to help you select the shoe that enhances your running or walking experience the most.
