In-Step, inc is a family owned and operated business that opened in August of 2009 in the Table Mesa Shopping Center in Boulder, CO. In-Step sells sport accessories, active footwear and apparel for walkers, runners and anyone that enjoys a little extra support and comfort in their day to day functions. The specialty of In-Step is the fabrication of custom made insoles, also known as orthotics or foot supports. Unlike other similar types of products, In-Steps custom insoles are specific to the individual. We can take a mold of your foot and build the insole while you wait. Estimated time is between 30 to 45 minutes. There is no follow up appointment needed, unless you are needing an adjustment, which is at no additional charge!
In the past 13 years, RL's insole customers have consisted of Ironman Champions, Professional Baseball, Football and Basketball players, Indy 500 Racers, Boston, Chicago and New York marathon winners, Hollywood Stuntmen, Nascar Drivers, Tour de France cyclists, Professional Golfers and Olympians.

RL and Tricia met at the Boulder College of Massage Therapy where they both became licensed and certified sports therapists. They were married in 2000 and joined by their son, Spencer in 2008. Their life experiences, education and refreshing take on customer service will welcome anyone into the store for the professional advice you look for along with the friendly and welcoming atmosphere to be yourself.
