Shoe laundry and leather catering is a hot item. Taking care of the shoes is taxing. There is no professional service offered to maintain high end shoes. As a result, people often ignore their problem with shoes. And rather buy a new pair rather than repair the old ones. But now things will change. The new market trend is shoe washing and leather restoration. It also provides cleaning, repairing, coloring, restoring, drying and dyeing. It’s a shoe spa. it is a keeper for your shoes.
Gait analysis is a tool used to assess how well one walks and runs. It is a free service. Free gait analysis is provided as part of a shoe fitting process. The installation includes an analysis station with a conveyor belt, a camera and a laptop computer equipped with sensor software. It evaluates foot patterns and fits into a running shoe. For starters, he captures a short video of about 20 seconds of running the treadmill in a neutral shoe with little to no cushioning. This makes it possible to highlight anomalies in the gait. Using the generated inputs, Rapport staff will be able to analyze the model.
This gives information and understanding for choosing the right type of running shoe and could ultimately help you avoid injury.
It is a one stop shop for all foot needs. We pay more attention to clothes and less to shoes. The feet carry the burden of the body. We are still standing. The health of the feet is very important. But the least attention is paid to buying the right shoes. As a result, we experience problems like blisters, pain in the knees, back, spine and hip. With an understanding of the science of the feet or the science behind the shoe, we can alleviate the problem, Teja Bodepudi said during her media interaction minutes after the new showroom opened to the public. We bring with us 40 years of experience in the footwear industry. Our parent company Profit Shoes has more than 100 outlets in the southern states of India and it is the most admired brand, he added.
Our job is to watch people’s feet. The reason we chose Hyderabad to roll out this new vertical is that this market is the fastest growing in India. The city is open to new offers. If this model clicks, we would like to replicate it all over India, Teja informed. It’s experiential shoe shopping. We are constantly thinking about improving the customer experience. In fierce competition, an enjoyable experience is one way that adds value to a brand.
Teenagers are looking for fashionable shoes. Fitness enthusiasts look for comfort in walking shoes. Shoe lovers are looking for good shoes. An executive looks for a wide variety of shoes to suit different occasions. The current problem with shoe shopping in Hyderabad is finding the right size / wrong shoes; stretch the shoes, find their choice and color, find a good quality shoe that lasts more than one season of wear, find someone in the shoe store who understands your foot’s needs. The shoe-buying experience is already eroding in online shopping. Rapport helps you to have unique shoes, according to your needs and your choices. The shoes will be as unique as you are, added Teja.
In the years to come, buying shoes will be more complicated as technology is incorporated into the shoe, Teja said. Thanks to wearable technology, smart shoes are on the rise. New generation shoes come with more difficult product design and utility value. Can you imagine that your shoes can make you run faster?
Nike Zoom Vaporfly Running Shoes help athletes run 4% faster. Tie-up shoes are a new trend. Nike already offers self-tie shoes. The Adapt BB – Nike’s decades-long dream of creating a smart, self-lacing shoe that adapts to wearers’ feet is now a reality. After smart homes, luggage, we have smart shoes, digitally connected shoes.
Shoes with GPS can track children, the blind and the elderly, Teja informed. Some shoes see. Shoes with built-in sensors were created to alert blind and visually impaired people of obstacles in their path. There are vegan shoes, made of vegan materials. Shoes made from alternative materials, alternatives to leather like pineapple, marine litter, algae, fungi, etc.
