A 3D Foot Mapping
3D Foot Scan
The advanced 3D Foot Mapping System analyses your foot using laser and micro cameras. The result is a 3D scan of your foot, which is compared to a database to find the shoes that match your feet best.
Measurements made by the system include foot length, forefoot width, ball girth, arch height and heel tilt.
After your Foot ID session, you can also access your 3D Foot Scan online, in your personal account.
B Gait Assessment
Gait Cycle Analysis
Your gait cycle is analysed using video. This involves walking on a treadmill for a few minutes while your feet are filmed. The images are then analysed by an ASICS expert.
The focus of gait analysis is to measure your degree of pronation. Pronation is the way the foot rolls inward when you walk and run.
Based on this analysis you can try on shoes that match your pronation pattern. A correct shoe type will counter-balance overpronation or underpronation, thus helping to reduce the risk of injury and improving running efficiency.

What is a gait cycle?
You have probably never analysed your own running in this way, but you can break down one complete step into several component movements or phases. Together this is called the gait cycle.
It describes how humans walk and run - in other words, how we move. Having an idea of the gait cycle helps to make sure you are choosing the correct running shoes.
What is pronation?
Pronation is the way your foot rolls inward when you walk and run. It is part of the natural movement that helps the lower leg deal with shock. Some people pronate more (overpronation) or less (underpronation) than others.
Though this is not bad in itself, it does affect the way you run and it may increase the likelihood of injury. This makes your pronation pattern an important factor in choosing the right running shoes.
