One of the biggest problems in the shoe industry are rising return costs. Especially in the online ordering process, where people are not able to try on different sizes and styles in real-time, returning non-fitting shoes have become a common way. Increasing processing costs and a higher burden for the environment, combined with a non-ideal user experience lead to frustration on both sides - the clients as well as the merchants. mySHOEFITTER's solution contributes significantly to solve this problem.

Meet the team
Markus Piebrock, as co-founder of the online shop www.jogging-point.de and www.tennis-point.de, has been able to gain relevant experience with online shoe trade. In the course of building up this online shop, the idea for mySHOEFITTER was born, because the return rate due to the wrong shoe size was between 40-50%, which caused correspondingly high return costs, such as postage, packaging, care/hygiene of the returned shoes, storage, etc...
