Get a Professional Fit with
our 5-Step Fit Process


No two feet and no two runners are exactly alike. Finding the right shoe starts with knowing the athlete. Are you training for your first 5K or your 10th Marathon? Looking to lose weight or tackle your first obstacle race? Dealing with an injury? We can help with that too. Our fit specialists conduct a thorough interview to fully understand you and your running needs. Our goal is to present you with the best products that will benefit you the most during your training.


Did you know that it’s common to have two different sized feet? Using our iStep digital foot scanner, our fit specialists will analyze your arch height and length, pressure distribution and your foot size – three important factors in properly fit running shoes. Do you suffer from pain in your foot? Based on your digital scan, iStep can make an insole recommendation to alleviate foot discomfort.


Do you over-pronate? Supinate? Are you a midfoot striker? Our fit specialists will conduct a video gait analysis to determine what type of foot strike you have. By recording you run on a treadmill, we can show you in slow motion what level of stability you need.


Our shoe wall can be intimidating. We carry over 100 models from 10 vendors. Our fit specialists will narrow down the best options and bring out a handful of shoes for you to try on. We want you to know how they feel, so take them for a spin outside or jump on a treadmill for a run. How else are you suppose to know how they feel?


Finding a comfortable running shoe is just the first step towards having a great run, but proper socks, apparel and insoles can take your training to the next level. From setting up a new watch to training advice, our expert staff is here to answer any running related questions you might have.

My shopping experience yesterday was amazing! I have not ever had such superb customer service! I was greeted as soon as I entered the store, and even though it was very busy in the store I was helped very quickly. I was given a complete assessment of my running stride, and was given information about the different shoes available in a very helpful manner. Debbie was kind and very easy to work with! She listened to all my thoughts and concerns, and found the the perfect shoe for me! It was refreshing to shop at a store that was more interested in finding the right shoe for me, instead of just the most expensive. I was very impressed, and looking forward to my next shopping experience at this store.

Excellent running shop. I’ve gotten my running shoes here for many years and today I needed a pair of shoes for gym workouts. Ariana was very helpful, knowledgeable, and patient. I narrowed my choice from three pair to one pair. I needed to return to the store the next day with my orthotics to be sure the fit would be the same with them inserted. Ariana put my shoes on hold and was there the next day to help me complete my purchase.

I always get a great shoe and a great fit with their skilled staff and the sizing equipment they have on-site. And, they have such good running programs for all levels of runners.

Outstanding service. Salesman asked what my goals are then helped me find the right shoes according to my stepping style. I loved how the salesperson explaining to me the process of choosing running shoes and presented me with several options. He made the process simple and fun. Will be shopping here again.

About a Snail’s Pace Runshop

At A Snail’s Pace Running Shops, our specially trained staff will make sure you’re fit in the running shoes that are best suited to your individual needs. Our 5-Step fit process typically takes anywhere from 30-45 minutes, during which we conduct a digital foot scan, which analyzes your foot and arch length, height and pressure points, analyze your foot strike using a treadmill and video cameras and make appropriate footwear recommendations from the over 200 running shoe styles we carry. All you need to do is discuss these options with us so we can help you select the ideal pair which fits and feels the best to you. It’s easy and it’s fun!
