RoadRunner Sports

Beyond tops, shorts, sports bras, and moisture-wicking socks, this homegrown national brand starts your shoe browsing with their new Fit Finder method. First, you run barefoot on a treadmill and analyze the video in slow-motion to check for issues like pronation. They then take a photo of your feet that gauges six major measurements, including size, heel width, and instep, to find the perfect shoe for you. For a super-balanced run, get their insoles (from $75), which mold to each foot individually and help if, say, your right arch is higher than your left. RoadRunner also has an on-site clearance store.
