Great Bootfit = Happy Feet
Whether you are in the Sierra, Timbuktu or just hanging out, your feet can make or break your day. A16’s experts can help you to select the best footwear for your adventures. Our bootfit expertise is based on a proven methodology of great socks, foot inspection, footwear selection, testing and customization.
Socks: Have you ever had a really good pair of socks? We will recommend several pairs based on your physiology and footwear needs. Once you have discovered the joys of great socks, your feet will thank you for it!
Foot Inspection: We take the time to sit down with you, look at your feet and measure them for width and two different lengths while you are sitting and standing. Our A16 Fit Card is used to record our observations and helps us to better understand what is going on with your feet. If your feet change size more than ½ a size between sitting and standing, we will recommend a pair of Superfeet Footbeds to improve the fit and make your feet feel great!
Footwear Selection: We combine what we learned during your Foot Inspection with our knowledge of our footwear selection to determine the best match for your feet and needs.
Testing: Just measuring alone will not tell you if the footwear will fit. We have several different testing methods based on our incline board, which will help to determine whether the footwear is proper and if we need to make any customizations.
Customization: Your feet are unique. Shouldn’t your footwear reflect that? We take pride in taking a pair of stock footwear and matching them to the unique shape of your feet. Stretching for bumps, modifying the heel counter and modified lacing are just a few of the many tricks we have up our sleeve to make your footwear fit well!
