Personalized Fit

Here is how our highly trained staff put you in the right shoes...

At Foot Moxy, fitting shoes is more than just finding the right size of shoe for your feet. We do an evaluation of your feet to understand what your foot type is and what, if any, foot ailments you may have (bunnies, flatfeet, arthritis, hammertoes etc.) We then select a shoe to give you a  personalized fit that your feet need. We want your feet comfortable and happy. We like to say, “Happy Feet, Happy You!”

What is my foot type?

Understanding your foot type will help you determine which shoes are going to work best for you. Everyone’s foot is a little different so a shoe that works well for you may not work well for someone else, and vice versa. 

There are three basic foot types which include over-pronation, neutral and under-pronation (supination). 

The 3 Basic Foot Types

Under Pronation (Supination)

Supination is the term commonly used for someone with high arches. The people tend to strike the ground hard and walk/run on the outside border of the foot. This can lead to injuries such as stress fractures and shin splints.

Neutral

This is the ideal foot posture. While walking or running the foot lands on the outer edge and then rolls inward in a controlled manner, distributing weight evenly and helping to absorb shock. On push off, there is an even distribution of pressure from the front of the foot. This type of foot is less likely to develop problems.

Over Pronation

Over-pronation is the term commonly used for “flat feet”. If your feet over-pronate your feet and ankles tend to roll inward. This can be due to instability in the ligaments and tendons on the inside of the arch and ankle, which may cause plantar fasciitis or ankle strains.

Determine Your Foot Type

Determining your foot type is fairly simple, especially if you can’t make it in to the store to have your foot evaluated. This test is particularly handy if you’re concerned that your gait may have changed since your last assessment. Keep in mind that this is only a guide.

Wet Foot Test

This test is performed by wetting your feet and then standing on a towel, dark heavy duty paper or pavement. The foot print you create will help you determine which foot type you have. 

The amount of the footprint visible will give you an indication of which foot type you have…and which type of shoes you need.
