Good shoes can always improve one’s appearance. The famous French fashion designer Roger Vivier once said, ‘To wear dreams on one’s feet is to begin to give a reality to one’s dreams.’
The emergence of new fashion trends in the global society is rapidly increasing the demand for custom shoes. These trends bring advantages to players in the global custom shoes market. Yet, to scale the production process of luxury bespoke shoes globally is a big challenge. To ensure quality control and the best customer experience, most fashion houses have to keep production locally and adopt an online expansion strategy. The proliferation of e-commerce platforms and the emergence of 3D printing turn fiction into reality.
We at NutsDev have combined these drivers into one application that brings the user experience of visiting a fashion house online. The application is powered by ARKit from Apple that utilizes the camera and LiDAR Scanner on iPhone and iPad to create a 3D model of customers’ feet and then be 3D printed in-house at the workshop. The process of placing an order online including 3D scanning and customization of the pair of ‘dream’ shoes is as natural and convenient as visiting a fashion house. Once 3D scans are printed and stored at the workshop, customers just need a couple of taps to order the next pair of shoes.
We approach every problem with an open mind, and we’re not afraid to experiment, try new things and find the best possible solution. And that is the value NutsDev always delivers to its clients.
