Soles in Motion offers you all the information you need to make the right choice in footwear.  We have one of the largest selections of hard to find widths and depths in shoes for both men and women available in HRM.  Since finding a pair of footwear is the first step in promoting wellness Soles in Motion offers you an educated experience where we measure your feet the old fashion way as well as scan your feet for pressure points, watch your gait, and suggest footwear that will compliment your daily activities.

Here are some interesting facts:

* The size of your feet changes as you grow older so always have your feet measured before buying shoes. The best time to measure your feet is at the end of the day when your feet are largest.

* Most of us have one foot that is larger than the other, so your shoe should be fit to your larger foot.

* Don’t select shoes by the size marked inside the shoe but by how the shoe fits your foot.

* Select a shoe that is shaped like your foot * When we fit your shoes, we make sure there is enough space (3/8″ to 1/2″) for your longest toe at the end of each shoe when you are standing up.

* Make sure the ball of your foot fits comfortably into the widest part of the shoe.

* Don’t buy shoes that feel too tight and expect them to stretch to fit.

* Your heel should fit comfortably in the shoe with a minimum amount of slipping – the shoes should not ride up and down on your heel when you walk.

There are many type of shoes, let Soles in Motion educate you on what is best for you.  We can explain terms like neutral, stability, cushioned, 8 – 12 mm drop, different lasts, strike paths, EVA, Absorb, GORE-TEX® and help you understand what is best for your feet.
