Our mission is to help clients run injury-free
What is the process of visiting Runners’ lab?
Each Runners’ lab store is equipped with a 30m long test track with a 2m footscan® plate in the middle on which the gait analysis is performed. Based on the results, our consultants provide feedback and recommend shoes and/or orthotics that will allow you to continue running injury-free.
Step 1. Introduction
Running is a hugely varied sport and can be experienced in a variety of ways. This is why we attach enormous importance to a personal talk, in which we ask about all your personal preferences and needs.
Step 2. Let’s run
Now that we know your running history and preferences, your foot pattern comes into play. Each store is equipped with a 30-meter test track with built-in footscan® technology to visualize this.
Step 3. The shoes
After the analysis, the consultant chooses some suitable models from the wide stock. Did you know that we are one of the only specialty stores in Europe to have width sizes and running or walking shoes up to size 52? From all major well-known and small specialized brands, we offer only the top models that meet our quality label. On average, our shoes range between €130 and €190.
Step 4. Test your shoes
The various models the consultant selects for you are tested one by one on the test track. Based on your findings and the results of the Footscan® technology, we look for the model with the best combination of support and fit.
Step 5. Runners’ service
If necessary, the insoles of your shoes will be adjusted in our workshop. This customization allows it to accommodate asymmetry or provide additional support for your feet at specific pressure points. These adjustments are also free of charge and included in our comprehensive service.
