FootBalance specialty retail shop expands to offer a dedicated footbed studio


FootBalance, an innovator in custom footbed technology is proud to announce the grand opening of a new Tad Hughes Custom Fit Studio featuring the FootBalance Recommendation System.

Tad Hughes Custom Fit Studio in Houston, Texas is the only full-time, independent fit studio in Texas to offer online scheduling, published pricing and live pressure mapping technology. It’s now moved from its bike shop location and into a larger studio fully dedicated to custom bike fitting and footbed fitting.

Owner, Tad Hughes says, "We are honored to expand upon our partnership with FootBalance with the opening of our new studio and the addition of a full-time foot mechanics expert whose experience, industry reputation and artisanship, paired with the FootBalance System, will offer a broader clientele a one-stop custom footbed solution for their particular sport or lifestyle. We hope our athletes as well as the general public will embrace the FootBalance System into their daily lives to promote recovery and overall structural alignment. Everyone has two feet and ten minutes to save their soles."

To accommodate the increase in clients making appointments to get molded with custom footbeds, Tad Hughes Custom Fit Studio has hired a full-time fit expert specializing in foot mechanics and joint impact. Nick Davis brings more than 14 years of action sports experience to his new position and is equipped to offer the industry’s best foot analysis and custom footbed fitting program. He’ll exclusively use the FootBalance Recommendation System, providing clients of all abilities with an overview of individual foot mechanics and custom footbeds in fewer than ten minutes.

FootBalance footbeds support feet properly to help prevent overpronation, reduce the effects of excessive supination, and improve overall foot function. Regularly wearing custom footbeds helps improve overall body alignment, which can help reduce the incidence of stress injuries.

"It’s exciting to see specialty retail friends like Tad Hughes grow and be able to offer their expertise to even more people," says FootBalance North America Managing Director Jeremy Town. "Their professionalism is remarkable and their enthusiasm is evident the second you walk through the door. It’s going to be fun to see this new location take off."

The new studio will be marked with a grand opening celebration Saturday, November 23rd from 6:30pm to 10:00pm. The new location is 223 East 11th Street, Houston, TX. Food and drinks will be provided.
