If you are too busy or too tired to go shopping, here comes the solution for you- a new app that can put your shoes on.
The new app, created by the Belarus start up, Wannaby, solves many problems that people have, with online shopping and also with shopping in stores. Wannaby created Wanna Kicks, an app based on augmented reality that lets you “try on” any pair of shoes. Here is how it works: you open the app, you choose a pair you like from a list, then you just point your smartphone to your feet and there you have it – you can virtually see how the shoes would look on you.
“Our mission is to break online shopping barriers. We see two major problems in the shoe market. Online conversions are quite low, and returns are quite high, in comparison to traditional ‘brick-and-mortar’ shopping. The ability to try sneakers with your phone before buying online should shift conversions, engagement and returns”, Wannaby CEO Arkhangelskiy reveals to Techcrunch.com
Oh, as a useful detail, you should “try on” the shoes when you’re barefoot, so the app would work properly. Wanna Kicks can’t tell you what size to buy, but at least you will know for sure which is your favorite pair. For the moment, Wanna Kicks is only available on iOS, it’s free and very easy to use.
“Lots of customers are eager to know more about new sneaker releases, and AR is a great new way for people to experience sneakers that are new to the market or are about to get to the market. Essentially, this is the main idea behind Wanna Kicks: allowing users to choose and decide whether they like a shoe or not without visiting a physical store.”, Arkhangelskiy tells Techcrunch.com.
Another good thing about the app is that you can store pictures with the virtual shoes on and share it on social platforms.
If you are not so much into virtual stuff, try something real, right here 🙂
