The TF2 Rating System
At That Fit Friend, I’ve formulated a rating system to compare different products within the same category to one another. This provides me with the means to give every single training shoe and piece of apparel their own respective ratings in a clean concise manner.
These ratings are designed to do two key things.
- Improve your user experience with the reviews I publish.
- Make it easy for you to compare products that you’re interested in.
My hope is that as you get to know me and That Fit Friend, you’ll start to identify which products would fit your needs best based on their ratings and my feedback.
There are countless training shoe and apparel options on the market. At That Fit Friend, I’m constantly trying to make my reviews as easy and digestible as I can for you.
