"Most people shop for running shoes based on how they look. I hate to say it, but that's the worst way to choose a running shoe." Gotfredson asserts that the key to a lifetime of enjoyable, injury-free running is wearing shoes that fit an individual's feet perfectly and address their unique foot mechanics. To do so, Gotfredson says, "I asked my team of running geniuses to build us the best shoe-fit system available, and after a lot of research and testing, that's what they did."
Gotfredson explains, "I tested it the other day, and after 15 minutes of computer analysis, treadmill testing, and personal attention, I was fitted in the perfect pair of shoes and insoles. I am not exaggerating when I say my aging joints have never felt better."
Road Runner Sports backs up their new 5-Step Shoe Dog System with their 60-Day Perfect Fit Guarantee. Gotfredson says, "No one else in this business has that guarantee. You can take your new shoes home. Run in them for sixty days. If you have the slightest doubt about your running shoes, return them. We'll find you the right pair or give you your money back."
