Comprehensive 1.5 hour assessment
Solefit is a family run business in Ottawa operating since 2005, specializing in injury assessment, video gait analysis, custom orthotics, and bracing and recovery products.
SoleFit has been providing me with orthotics and gait analysis for over a decade now, and I can confidently say that they are the best in the business. Ten years ago, as a world ranked runner, I wore SoleFit orthotics in my preparation to running a sub-4 minute mile, and today, as a professional cyclist, I wear my SoleFit orthotics in every race and ride.
As a cyclist, I am always looking for ways to make my shoes lighter, and my power-transfer better, through SoleFit’s custom, in-house work, I know that I am getting the best performance from my cycling shoes. And as a former runner, and current running coach, SoleFit is the first place I recommend to my clients for gait analysis. Their input in my running career enabled me to achieve faster times, and helped stave off injury, and their analysis and work with my clients has done the same.
As I prepare to leave Ottawa, I'm sad to know that there won't be great people like you guys to help my patients in the Northwest Territories...If you ever open a second location, may I recommend Fort Smith, NWT (pop. 2500)?
SoleFit produced various orthotics for me to fit all my training and competition needs in running and fencing. They have allowed me to maintain training and racing after suffering from plantar fasciitis in 2012.
SoleFit was able to analyze my gait for running, footwork in fencing, and help identify proper shoes to allow my feet to become stronger and more sustainable long term. The continued adjustments and tweaks help me to feel confident to keep pushing my limits without worrying about my previous foot pain.

Huge kudos and thanks for the expertise, friendliness and professionalism of the entire crew at SoleFit. So thankful that my path lead to them almost a decade ago - they have been crucial in extending my personal athletic career and helping out countless referred friends and family members.

I am a 4 X Canadian National Team Member in the 100meter hurdles. I have a bunion, which the nature of my sport aggravates. This past summer, it got so bad that I was unable to run or even wear a closed toe shoe. Someone referred me to SoleFit. SoleFit has helped me get back on my feet (literally) so I can train for the World Championships this summer. Not only is SoleFit extremely knowledgeable, they also genuinely care about their clients’ well-being. Unlike other places I've tried, they aren't about getting you to buy the most expensive orthotics or the latest miracle cure. They take you through an assessment, listen to your concerns and develop a customized “treatment plan” to help you achieve your goals. I strongly recommend SoleFit not only to people suffering from foot and knee pain but also to persons looking to maximize their potential!

The human body is a magnificent organism, but there will always be setbacks and injuries. That’s where the team at SoleFit comes into play!
I’ve had a few injuries to work through over the years, and the SoleFit team were always able to help me get back on my feet. In particular, using gait analysis and correcting my running technique. They have so many amazing tools and resources at their disposal to help you be active, injury-free! They’re all athletes too! They know what it’s like to be on both sides of it. You will gain so much knowledge from your visit to SoleFit, and leave knowing confidently that you’re in good hands!
