Our Process

We make running easy through a simple three-step process.

   •   Process

Process

1

Tell Us Your Story

There are two stories we want to know. One is a story of your running history and future aspirations. This includes your current mileage, prior running injuries/issues, and future goals —if any beyond the pure enjoyment of living a healthy lifestyle. The second story we want to know is your biomechanical story. From there we’ll guide you in the right direction by narrowing down to a curated selection of shoes just for you.

Your running story is personal. It matters.

2

Feel The Sensation

As you briefly run in-store in the shoes we’ve curated for you, we’re going to help you identify what feels best. You may like a cushy shoe or prefer a more firm shoe. There’s no wrong answer. And, we’ll make sure the models you try work for your biomechanics. During the process we may also give you a few pointers on your running form.

Get ready to feel the sensation.

3

Let ‘Em Ride

You have 90 days from the date of purchase to run-in your new shoes. If you don’t like them for any reason during that time bring them back and we’ll give you full store credit towards a new pair of shoes. We ask you to trust yourself. Sometimes a shoe that felt great in the store just doesn’t feel as good after putting some miles in. In that case, we’ve got your back.

So get out and run worry-free!*

*One return per rewards account per year from the orignal point of purchase. Store credit must be redeemed at point of returned shoes.

Ready. Set. Start Here.
