How to Fit Yourself for Hoka One One HK Running Shoes At Home

It is usually recommended to get a professional fitting and gait analysis from a licensed retailer to make sure you have the right fit, stability, and comfort before buying a pair of running shoes. As solo running is the most available method of exercise, many people have a good reason to buy new running shoes! So how should you go about doing it yourself? Start with the basics.

Trace Your Feet

What you’ll need:

  • A pair of running socks
  • Enough paper to trace each foot onto
  • Two different colour writing utensils
  • A ruler
  • A calculator

Before you trace your feet, go for a walk. The human foot expands after walking, and you’ll want to get a shoe that fits your foot comfortably. Trace one socked foot at a time, you can use a towel as a knee pad for comfort. You’ll want to do two traces of each foot, without moving your foot off the paper between traces. The first - in one colour crayon - angled in as tightly as possible to the contours of your foot, the second trace should aim to outline the outer edges of each foot.

Measure Your Footprints

Since you’re unlikely to have a Brannock Device shoe-sizer handy in your home, an average of the proportions of your two traces is the most accurate way to measure your feet. You’ll want to use this average method to measure the following:

  • Heel-to-Toe Length: distance from heel to furthest toe
  • Heel-to-Ball Length: distance from heel to ball (the widest point of the foot’s inner side)
  • Width: the distance between the ball and the foot’s outer edge

Now that you have these, you’re ready to find the right running shoes!

Check Your Gait

Next, you’ll want to see if your natural running form could benefit from stability-added shoe features. Check your oldest pair of shoes. Where is it most run-down? If it’s along the inner edge of both feet, you may have lower arches than usual and a tendency to over-pronate and might benefit from a stability shoe. Outer edges? You could be dealing with higher arches and supination, and you might want more cushion without added stability. Straight down the middle? You can wear just about any running shoes that make you comfortable.

When you shop HOKA HK shoes, check out the feature guide on each page to make sure you’re getting the right stability, cushion and size for your feet. Happy running!
