For some people, shopping is therapeutic. For others, it is a tedious exercise of mindlessly walking around hoping to find something that you like. Online shopping is a perfect solution for the latter. The biggest problem is sizing difference from brand to brand. Shirts are less complicated because you’re mostly dealing with a small, medium, large, or extra large size. However, shoes can be a nightmare to shop for online. A perfect example of shoe size variability is regular Nike running shoes versus Converses. Suppose you wear a 10 in Nike, your size in Converse will be an 8.5. Talk about frustrating right? It’s even worse for dress shoes. Finally, there is a solution!
Qüero fuses two very different concepts, artisan-made Spanish shoes with technology for a one-of-a-kind experience. You might be wondering how handmade Spanish artisan leather shoes fit in with technology. Qüero uses Augmented Reality to figure out the size of your feet. Simply place your foot on a 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of paper, and take three photographs of your foot from three angles. Qüero Fit App will take that information to find you the perfect sized shoe. Unbelievable right?
Qüero can accommodate all different sizes of feet: 6 to 15 for men and widths from regular to EE. You might be thinking this is too good to be true and that the catch is going to be some exorbitant price tag for a custom shoe. That is not the case. Qüero takes the middle-man out of the picture and sells directly to you, which results in savings. Qüero shoes are comparable to other $500-600 shoes for under $300. The streamlined process will have your custom shoes delivered to you in six weeks or less. There are a ton of styles that range from loafers, Oxfords, Chelsea boots, and more. You get to choose the shoe style, select the leather/s, details and sole.
Qüero is currently a Kickstarter project that has currently raised over $20,000 out of a $25,000 goal. The Super Early Bird special gets you 1 pair of made to order shoes for only $170 with the option of a second pair for an additional $160. You’ll also get a complimentary Qüero shoe horn. Qüero’s vision of simplifying the process of ordering shoes is really exciting for people who love to shop online. Here at deTeched, we love using technology to make our lives easier and Qüero is a perfect example of that. For more information on Qüero, check out its Kickstart page by clicking here.
