Tired of not finding shoes & boots to fit you?
I think we’ve all figured out by now that those so-called “standard” shoe sizes aren’t really all that standard. What fits you in one brand will be too tight or too loose in another brand. That’s assuming they even have your size in stock!
There are many factors to shoe fit besides just length (the “shoe size”). There is also the shoe width: AA (narrowest), A, B, C/D, E, and EE (widest). Did you know these are the official widths? Probably not, so it’s not likely you would know which one is yours. Here’s a fun fact for you: feet are 3-dimenssional! Who knew? That’s right, the hight of your foot can also affect fit. Whether it’s your bone structure, or other factors, the height of your foot will affect how tight the shoe feels, even if the width of your foot happens to fall in the “standard” width category. And this is all before we start talking about ankle and calf widths for boots! Even if you are one of the lucky few who wear a size they always seem to have in stock at the store, finding boots that fit your calf can be very difficult!
So why don’t they just make the shoes to fit each person?
In the past, it has been very costly to get accurate sizing info and then custom make the shoes or boots, which is why it’s so rare. Especially since certain styles (mostly women’s styles) require specialized equipment and can’t be made using simple hand tools by a cobbler.
Until now. Thanks to the recent advent of 3D image capture technology that can now be programmed into a smartphone app, you can now get highly accurate sizing at a tiny fraction of the cost.
Then, using existing software, equipment and manufacturing techniques, you can mass produce custom sized shoes and boots quickly, affordably, and profitably!
We are currently seeking seed investment to begin programming the app, as well as purchase the equipment necessary for calibration, prototyping, and beta testing.
