IMPORTANCE OF FIT
At The Athlete’s Foot we’re all about FIT, but WHY does FIT matter in footwear?
NOW THAT'S FIT
THE IMPORTANCE OF WIDTH
Shoe widths play an integral role in the comfort and health of your feet, as well as the longevity of your shoes.
It’s important to get fitted regularly as your foot shape changes.
Common signs for having the incorrect width is the restrictive feeling across the forefoot or toes (sometimes causing a burning sensation),
or irritation from the upper materials (causing the upper to rip) or pinching across the top of your foot.

Footwear not only comes in multiple widths, but also varied levels of support.
For example a Saucony Ride focuses towards cushioning features for a Neutral foot type, while the Saucony Guide focuses towards Stability features for a foot needing additional arch support.
Below is a small guide on our 3 main types of shoes.
MOTION CONTROL shoes are designed for those that need a high level of support that can control the foot and help realign the lower limb during movement. This type of shoe can cater for those that may have injuries and/or conditions to the ankles, knees or feet. Popular Control shoes are
While a support shoe focuses towards support, a NEUTRAL shoe (sometimes referred to as a Cushioning shoe) focuses more towards cushioning aspects of a shoe, maintaining the foots natural pronation and providing additional shock absorption where it counts. Popular Neutral shoes are
SUPPORT shoes (sometimes referred to as a Stability shoe) are focused on adding stability features into the shoe (most commonly medial arch support), this shoe type is generally catered for an over pronating foot (roll in too far).
