Markus Piebrock, as co-founder of the online shop and , 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..
