At The Running Well Store, we specialize in ensuring you are in the proper fitting pair of shoes, however not everyone can come to see us in person.  Below is a simple way for you to find your size at home.

A properly fitting pair of running shoes should feel snug in the heel with some wiggle room in the toes.  A typical rule of thumb for a proper fit is to go a half size up in your athletic shoes compared to your dress or casual shoes.

Measuring both feet is important as most individuals have one foot that is larger than the other and we will fit for the larger foot.

If you have not had your feet measured since your parents dragged you in for school shoes, it is time to get fitted! The length and width of your foot changes throughout your life so we recommend that you get fitted every year.
