At Align CFF the athletic shoe brand we stand behind for technical performance is Asics. We do not recommend you into an athletic shoe like a conventional shoe store might. Our Align Clinical team of Canadian Certified Pedorthists, Chiropodists, Athletic Therapists and Strength and Conditioning Specialists will first conduct your ~45 minute, medical Body Align Assessment to determine a complete picture of your true biomechanic needs. This includes muscle and strength tolerance testing and an annotated, slow motion video gait analysis showing your exact areas of misalignment and potential causes and corrections that can be made. Armed with this information, we take you into the Showroom to discuss athletic shoe options. The technical options available in the Asics line, combined with the many different possibilities to craft your custom device to correct your unique biomechanics, makes your athletic shoe design unique to you. Once we determine the most biomechanically appropriate athletic shoe, we 3D scan it. In our lab, we digitally remaster this together with all of your 3D scans and through Cadcam technology, modify your custom corrections and design it to work with the shoe, until it is perfect. The 3D model is printed and at your fitting appointment your Align Clinician will review how this will change your athletic style and specific areas to consider differently in your training, allowing you to achieve unparalleled performance results.
Overpronators the world over have enjoyed the comfort, value, and long-lasting performance of the many iterations of the 1000 series—now reborn and revitalized as the GT-1000. Runners of all levels rely on the GT-1000™ 6 for its balanced support, enhanced durability and cushioned ride at an incredible value. The GT 1000 6 enhances the foot’s natural gait from heel strike to toe-off. It improves bounce back characteristics and provides midfoot structural integrity. The rearfoot gel technology cushioning system attenuates shock during impact phase and allows for a smooth transition to midstance. Strategically positioned in critical areas of the outsole is 50% more durable materials than standard ASICS High Abrasion Rubber. With the Align Orthotic’s EucyProtec topcover, it is also antimicrobial, antifungal and odour-absorbing.
