Running shoes are a personal choice and possibly your most important gear. For that reason we take fitting you properly very seriously. With that said, it is our philosophy that no one but you can say how a shoe feels or performs. Everyone is different. At Spark, you will never be told that a specific shoe is the shoe for you. We’ll listen to you, examine you, and then bring you several styles to try and decide for yourself.
At our disposal we have a Thermal Board to give us a look at how your arch looks with your body weight on it as well as your ankle/foot structure, a Brannock Device to properly size you, and a treadmill for those of you who’d like a Gait Analysis. The most important tool that we have at our disposal is our well trained staff who genuinely cares about fitting you properly.
If you select a pair of shoes from our store and run in them later and are not completely satisfied with them: you may exchange them for another style!
Here’s an important note about minimalism. While it has great benefits it is also not for everyone. It takes work to change your gait and it doesn’t happen overnight. With that said, we have an impressive selection of minimalist shoes from the most popular brands.
