We strive to help you reach your ultimate fitness levels and maintain a good health while running and exercising. Highland Runners is located in the heart of Virginia Highlands in Atlanta, GA.
At Highland Runners, we provide a full fitting assessment based on the pattern of your run or walk with our free, in-store gait analysis. As seen on Fox 5 News, most of our running shoes are specifically designed to enable runners to achieve a proper stride of the forefoot/mid-foot landing. We carry a wide selection of leading brands, including: On-Running, Hoka, Topo, Skora, Merrell, Altra, 361, Karhu, Pearl Izumi, Inov-8 as well as many others. We also offer active apparels, accessories, gadgets, and supplements that are excellent for all sports and workouts.
Personalized Fitting & In-Depth Analysis
Find Your Perfect Fit
We offer a full, free personalized fitting for every customer. Wear something comfortable, and go for a short run on our in-store treadmill located in a private room for your comfort.
Using our advanced program of slow motion video analysis, we thoroughly capture your complete running gait, followed by a playback analysis.
This analysis involves reviewing, frame by frame, your foot movements and degree of pronation, if any, using our advanced program as shown in the picture. We use this information to find the right shoes for your foot type, whether you are training for your first 5k or are a seasoned runner.
Your data gathered from the analysis are stored in our system. On your next visit, we compared your previous data to the new analysis to see any changes in your running gait. We recommend requesting this free analysis when replacing your old shoes.
