When you visit JRC, we want to ensure that you receive the personalized attention that you deserve. For this reason, our team of experts offer a one-on-one consultation prior to the shoe fitting process.
It Starts With the Feet
JRC uses a comprehensive digital foot analysis program to gather data relating to your arch type, as well as, the length and width of your feet. We also discuss any injuries or inconsistencies that need to be taken into account (neuromas, bunions, sensitive areas, etc). Lastly, we discuss if you are currently using or considering the use of over-the-counter or custom orthotics. All of this information is important and gives us the baseline to begin properly fitting you to the perfect shoe.
At JRC, footwear is classified by the degree of stability it provides. Whether it’s a motion control (high stability) shoe, a structured cushioning (moderate or mild stability) shoe, or a neutral cushioning (little or no stability) shoe, it is crucial to correctly match the degree of stability a shoe provides with the degree of stability an individual needs. To determine your category, we use state-of-the-art video gate analysis. Watching frame-by-frame footage from our Video Gait Analysis enables us to pinpoint the nuances of your individual running needs. It also allows YOU to view the footage, making it easier for you to understand why one particular category of footwear will be more appropriate for you than another. We can also help you enhance your running form and point out certain tendencies that could be affecting your performance.
