This being my first blog I decided to do some research before I wrote it. ¬†Come to find out the word blog comes from a shortening of the word weblog. ¬†Some ¬†theft ¬†there as the word log has stolen the letter b from web. ¬†As for the title, it is Catalan for blog. Barcelona is the capital of Catalonia and is the home home of the best soccer team in the world. ¬†Now on to the subject at hand, running shoes.
At Track Shack we pride ourselves on customer service, an important part of which is shoe fitting. As we analyze a persons ¬†foot we notice many things, the first of which is the shape of the foot. This will prove invaluable in determining the proper shoe. ¬†Why? Simply put, ¬†the fit is the most important thing in fitting a running shoe, and the fit is determined by the shape of the foot and the shape of the shoe being as similar as is possible. ¬†
If the shapes are a good match the shoe will feel comfortable, the most obvious requirement for wearing them. Then ¬†too will the foot and shoe work together to cushion and support the foot through each footstrike. ¬†A good shape fit leads to less problems such as blisters and black toenails so you can enjoy your running more than ever.¬†
See you at the shoe wall!
