FITTING PROCESS

At Rhode Runner we provide every customer with an in-depth fitting process. This includes a gait analysis, along with a foot evaluation to find the proper support and fit.

We take the time to look at your gait to determine what level of support you need in your shoes. Be prepared to remove your shoes for us and take a walk or run down our indoor track!  We'll determine how much over-pronation you have and find the shoe that supports your foot properly.  

Once we determine what level of support you need our next step is finding the proper fit.  We'll measure your foot and analyze your foot shape to find a shoe that fits.  Our fitting process takes 20-30 mins as we'll have you try multiple shoes on to find the most comfortable pair for you.  You'll be on the Rhode in no time!

REVIEWS

  • Absolutely love this place and will never buy my running shoes anywhere else! I make a special trip from NYC to get them. Customer service is out of this world and all the employees are super knowledgeable.
    — Kristen D.
  • I jog I don't really run I was a bit worried about going in the store because I am not a pro but they were amazing. The sales person took so much time with me and really made me feel great about my choice. I picked a pair of sneaks and after a few runs did not like them and I have to say this store really stands behind their policies. I took them back and got the other pair no fuss at all. Looking forward to my running clinic this week - thanks so much!!
    — Jennifer S.
  • Rhode Runner not only has a knowledgeable, friendly staff, the customer service is unmatched. It's an hour's drive for me, passing many other sport stores on my way... but worth every mile, to have expert recommendations and outstanding customer service, such as theirs.
    — Jody D.
  • Super professional. Great experience. Staff seemed extremely knowledgable about shoes and what would help with my running pains.. Thank you very much!
