Local Running Store Offers Video Gait Analysis

The Boston Running Company, in Newton Centre, now offers a free video gait analysis to customers who would like to be fitted with the most appropriate running or walking shoes. Owner Mike Roche says that before buying a shoe, he wants customers to understand the way their feet behave when they are running or walking. “There are so many running and walking shoe options, and the customer should understand how to eliminate the ones that just won’t work for them,” says Roche. “With the video gait analysis, they can clearly understand what kind of support they need and select their shoe with confidence.”
Roche says his is the only running store in the Boston area to offer this kind of service and expertise for a thorough fitting process. The Boston Running Company also hosts free running groups for all levels on Monday and Wednesday evenings. Interested runners can call the store for more information and ask to be added to the mailing list.
