Who fits well in Toronto?

Postby tallguy » Fri Jul 29, 2005 3:01 pm

Anyone know a good shoe fitter in Toronto?

Someone who can tell you the benefits/drawbacks of different kinds
of running shoes, and who knows how to do a proper fitting.

Someone who can say something other than, "It's all up to you."

I've heard that there's a wizard over at a running shop near Bloor & Avenue Rd. who really knows her stuff.

Can anyone second that?

cheers,

Yep. Though I've personally never used her for shoes, I have many friends who have. She's the The Runner's Shop, just west of Avenue road. Also, dare I day it, Eric @ RR Commerce Court is FANTASTIC...he gets people from all over Ontario coming to see him for their shoes.

Thanks for the tip.
Do you happen to know the lady's name at The Runner's Shop?

You might want to try out Running Free in Markham. I mentioned them in another post. They're located at 708 Denison Street and their phone number is 905-477-7871.

Tallguy: I can't remember her name. She got short light coloured hair, mid-late 30's I'd guess. I'm pretty sure she's one of the owners.

thanks for the tips.

Markham would be a bit of a trek to buy shoes, but I'll keep that
suggestion in my back pocket. And Eric at Commerce Court sounds very promising.

But that lady at The Runner's Shop at Bloor & Avenue Rd. keeps getting raves. Anyone know her name?

thanks
