Just as horses require horseshoes for luck, humans require human shoes for chasing down luck-hoarding leprechauns. Access a fortunate fit with today's Groupon: for $40, you get $80 toward footwear and merchandise at Kintec: Footwear + Orthotics. Choose from seven locations in Vancouver, North Vancouver, Port Moody, Maple Ridge, Surrey, Langley, or Abbotsford.
At Kintec, university-trained fit gurus draw upon a thorough, five-tiered fitting process, exploring each foot's singular lifestyle to ensure a shoe-human compatibility. Prior to each fitting, slow-motion video and sensor technology measure length, width, and grape-stomping prowess. Upgrade walking, running, or two-stepping experiences with pedorthist-picked foot cocoons, such as the New Balance 1442 with biped-pleasing ultralight cushioning ($99.95) or the Nike Free 5.0 with a mesh upper that ensures flexible fit and lets feet breathe without uncomfortable snorkels ($124.95).
In addition to shoes, check out the Sole brand performance insoles ($44.95), supportive sport flip-flops ($79.95), or moisture-wicking ankle socks ($9.50). Kintec also offers a fit guarantee, promising a replacement in the event that feet shun their outer trappings within 30 days of purchase.
