Local news: Shoefitr

Right here in the Burgh, Shoefitr has been quietly developing what could be one of the best programs out there for the modern runner.  I first heard about the company through a profile in the PBT last May.

This month has seen a lot of rising buzz around the company, so I thought the half dozen or so Pittsburgh runners who read this should know what a few of your fellow Pittsburgh runners are up to.  Take this Time Magazine post from a few weeks ago as just one testament to Shoefitr's success. 

It's a great product, and the company certainly deserves to succeed.  I've used Shoefitr to purchase a few pairs now through RunningWarehouse, and was happy with the results in all cases.  Having an oddly shaped foot, I've found Shofitr's colored 3D models to be particularly helpful in determining whether a shoe will not only fit me, but fit comfortably in all places.

As a runner and a Pittsburgher, it's nice to see some local boys doing well.  2011 should be an exciting year for Shoefitr.  Here's hoping for the best.
