Our FITLOSOPHY™

The Fleet Feet Sports FITLOSOPHY™ is our commitment to the concept of a proper FIT in all aspects of your life - from our commitment to helping you find the proper FIT for your running shoes to assisting you with fitting an active, healthy lifestyle into your life. Simply stated, FITLOSOPHY™ is our FIT Philosophy and our approach to everything we do. Our process begins by ensuring that runners and walkers of all abilities (and ages) are FIT with the proper footwear, hydration and nutrition products, sports bras, and technical apparel to meet their individual needs.

At Fleet Feet Sports, our FITLOSOPHY™ does not stop with your shoes, inserts, and socks. Our process will ensure that you are FIT with everything that you will need to enjoy your active, healthy lifestyle.

Footwear

We offer a hand chosen selection of footwear brands in varying shapes, fits, and stabilities.  Based on your biomechanics, gait, and foot shape, we will recommend shoe styles to best fulfill your fitness and everyday footwear needs.

Inserts

Fleet Feet Sports Stamford carries a variety of inserts to help support your feet and align your body. Inserts are designed in a variety of shapes and sizes to meet the individual demands of your activities and footwear. Inserts align the bone structure of your feet inside the shoe, which creates a consistent and efficient structural foundation. The structural benefits of inserts play an active role both in the treatment and in the prevention of common injuries. At Fleet Feet Sports, we will take you through a measuring process to ensure we FIT you with the perfect insert!

Socks

Choosing a sock that works for your feet and your activity level is a critical component of Fleet Feet Sports’ FITLOSOPHY. Consider the fact that your sock is the layer of material that sits directly next to your skin and is intended to wick moisture and protect your feet from calluses, blisters, and other potential irritations. So, why not pick a pair of socks that best fits your foot? At Fleet Feet Sports, we recommend that you wear non-cotton, breathable socks for running, walking, or other activities.

Here are some of the top reasons why we make this recommendation:

  • At rest, the average foot releases 1 cup of sweat each day.
  • On a 5 mile run, your feet produce enough sweat to fill an 8 ounce glass.
  • 55% of foot perspiration evaporates through the shoes upper. The other 45% is absorbed in the sock and footbed of your shoe!
  • Two trillion bacteria live on your feet (that’s 12% of all bacteria on the human body).
