Better than the Naked Eye.
NEW! Video Motion Analysis. To determine your perfect fit, MRC’s trained fit specialists conduct in-depth evaluations of your biomechanics through a state-of-the art video system that combines specialized software with our treadmill. Better than the naked eye, at 25 frames a second, the video captures subtle nuances in your form, foot strike and more. Then taking into account your exercise habits and past injuries, our goal is to find you the optimal shoe.
4 Steps to the Perfect Fit
- Analysis: We analyze your gait in slow motion, actual speed and freeze frame.
- Comparison: We then compare up to 6 images of your stride side-by-side. Using frame-by-frame playback, we look at how your foot moves through the entire gait cycle—barefoot versus in shoes.
- Evaluation: Evaluating the performance of multiple shoes—side by side and in motion—in relation to your needs.
- Recommendation: Based on the analysis, we then make specific recommendations of the shoe that is best for you.

Come talk to us about not only what you've been reading, but addressing exactly how you want to use the shoe, and what you want out of it. Its not all or nothing; there are a lot of options in between!
