Podplus offers gait analysis free of charge when you buy your shoes from our store. We do recommend that you visit us when you are ready to purchase shoes as the shoe fitting process can be lengthy! As our stock is always changing, we may not have the shoes you originally decided upon if you return on another date and it is likely you may need to go through the fitting process again; we wouldnt want to waste your time.
If you would prefer to buy elsewhere we do offer gait analysis and footwear advice service at a cost of £25 and written recommendations can be provided for you.
What is Video Gait Analysis for Shoe fitting?
By running or walking on a treadmill, the fully trained staff at Podplus can use computer software to video your motion, which allows us to highlight the positions of your feet, muscles & joints, and enables our staff to offer shoes that are suitable for your foot type and your activity.
The assessment takes around 5-15 minutes and then you can try on a selection of shoes and give them a run out on the treadmill or outside if it is dry and more natural for you.
