As patrons pace and bounce on their heels, testing improved relationships with terra firma, the staff at Shoe Fitters Inc. inspects the foot anatomy and pressure points of each visitor using an Aetrex scanner. The revealing data enables them to recommend specific shoes and brands. In order to put this information to the best possible use, the crew undergoes continual training on new products and methods for addressing basic foot issues, such as rare dimensions and the phobia of closed-toe styles common among Greek gods. After listening to each patron's stylistic needs, staff members navigate wood and brushed-aluminum accents, glass shelves, and microsuede fitting chairs to pair feet with their requisite pavement pounders. Shoes from brands such as New Balance, Sperry, Clarks, Merrell, Ecco, and Born encase feet in a spectrum of styles for causal or formal events, athletics, and full-time jobs stomping sandcastles.
