Your experience begins in the Body Align Lab, which takes you on a 5-step assessment process. This determines your body’s overall, unique, biomechanical needs, in order to make your custom orthotic. A video recorded walk on the Align Catwalk or a run at the treadmill station provides a visual of the intricacies of your unique gait, followed by a digital scan of your feet, which produces a detailed image with exact measurements down to the millimeter. The quality and depth of the personalized assessment experience has left a trail of impressed, satisfied and comfortable customers with their foot health in Darius’ hands for over 5 years.

Featured brands include Lacoste, Rockport, Pajar, Hush Puppies, Asics, Keen, Royer and Bates, Clarks, Florsheim and Stacy Adams.
