At our GH Sports retail store in San Luis Obispo, California, we perform complimentary custom gait analyses to runners, walkers, hikers, gym goers, and individuals in need of comfortable shoes that meet their specific needs. The analysis gives us the ability to recommend shoes that will correctly support your foot type, mechanics, activity level, and goals. Whether you are using orthotics, suffering from past/current injuries, training for a race, or looking to ensure your long-term mobility, we’re here to help.

In 2002, our team worked with a physical therapist and PhD (who was also an accomplished athlete) to develop this GH Gait Analysis. To date we have performed over 35,000 evaluations. The process takes less than 15 minutes on average, always includes these important four steps, and is customized to each customer’s needs.

Step 1

Customer Intake

Discussion of your goals, activity level, injuries, etc.

Step 2

Foot & Arch Review

Review of your foot’s arch, shape, and pressure points

Step 3
