BEFORE WE FIT YOU WE’D LIKE TO GRILL YOU.
Choosing the right athletic shoe for the sport you play isn’t just a matter of going for the style and the color you like – or even initial “feel.”
So one thing we hope you’ll do before we fit you at The Athlete’s Foot is give us answers to some questions about yourself.
Questions we’ll ask now: How hard do you work when you play? How long do you spend at it? What kind of surface do you play on? What kind of injuries have you had?
As stores that specialize in shoes for athletes, we want to see that you walk out with just the right shoe to protect you and help you perform at the top of your game. So it helps if you tell us something about you first.
Of course, we sell only shoes from top manufacturers. We train our sales people so they’re fully acquainted with the wearing characteristics of every make and model. We know that the materials used in soles and uppers, the last, the construction, are all-important when it comes to keeping you out of trouble and in the action. And we keep that in mind when we make a sale.
So if you want to feel sure about the athletic shoes you buy, tell us about yourself. Then let us show you why we say. “Nobody knows the athlete’s foot like The Athlete’s Foot.”
If you’re a runner, we suggest that you try Nike: Nike Liberator training shoes, named a Runner’s World “5-star shoe” for 1980, slip-lasted for extra shock absorption; or Lady Roadrunners, with hexagon-nubbed outer sole for durability, built for intermediate runners. For tennis, look into Nike Lady All Court shoes, made of cool canvas with sturdy shell sole and moisture-absorbing terry cloth inner sole.
