At some point nearly every soccer player runs into issues with purchasing cleats online. This happens because, just like other footwear on the market, all boots are not sized the same. In fact, even widths can vary and it is difficult to choose the correct size when you cannot try them on before buying. However, we are excited to announce that Shoefitr has launched on soccer.com! Soccer.com added the Shoefitr app to help virtually eliminate the risk of customers purchasing the wrong size.
Does It Work?
James at sc101blog.com tested the Shoefitr app and found that every test was completely accurate, even when it came to stretch of the upper material. Soccerpro.com, who added the Shoefitr app in May of 2012, saw their return rate fall 28%. So it’s safe to assume that Soccer.com will soon enjoy a similar drop in returns!
How To Use The App
The application is very easy to use. Simply select a boot from the large selection available on soccer.com. Plug in what boot you wear, what size, and Shoefitr will compare them to the boot you are considering. Shoefitr will then find the ideal size and show a 3D graphic illustrating how the ideal sizes compares to your default boot. It even shows you how the boot will fit if you go up or down a half size.
The next time you buy boots from Soccer.com, make sure to run your selection through the Shoefitr app before putting it into your cart. Even if you are looking for a kids size, Shoefitr can help you find the right fit.
The fit of a soccer shoe is critical to every player’s performance and so, as online soccer shoe sales grow, retailers are using virtual fitting applications to help players get the perfect fit. SoccerPro.com integrated Shoefitr’s online fitting application in 2011 and immediately received feedback from customers who were delighted by their ability to get the perfect fit. Since launching the virtual fitting app, SoccerPro has seen its return rate fall 28% while the great feedback continues to roll in.
The Importance of Soccer Shoe Fit
The difference between a perfect fitting shoe and a poorly fitting one can be as small as a few millimeters. For soccer players, the fit of the shoe affects a player’s ability to control, pass, and shoot the ball. SoccerPro implemented Shoefitr’s application because the visual fitting comparison allows shoppers to optimize their purchase for those few critical millimeters.
How Does Shoefitr Determine Fit?
Shoefitr uses 3D imaging technology to scan the insides of shoes. The measurements are accurate to 250 microns and are used to create a visual display comparing the fit of a shoe a shopper currently wears to the one he or she wants to purchase. This allows players to accommodate their personal fit preferences when shopping online. The application also recommends the best fitting size for each shopper.
After a year of using Shoefitr’s application, SoccerPro.com was rewarded for its investment with a 28% reduction in the company’s return rate. The numbers were pulled from an analysis SoccerPro.com performed comparing return rates from 2012 to the same period in 2011, prior to using Shoefitr. Shoefitr App on SoccerPro.com.

Getting back to the important stuff, the US has a reputation for not faring well in the World Cup. In fact, the US rarely makes it out of group play. Now that Shoefitr is on the scene, US players will dazzle the rest of the world in properly fitting shoes. You can expect Team USA to be rainbowing, bicycle kicking and turtle waxing the rest of the world as they win the cup in 2014.
Check out Shoefitr on SoccerPro.com, get some shoes, and start scoring.
As Shoefitr steadily makes its way on to retail websites across the globe, we are without a doubt excited to have scored a spot for our app in one of the world’s happiest countries. UniSport.dk is a Denmark-based sporting goods web retailer that sells a kick-butt selection of youth and adult soccer shoes.
Although the Danish fodbold roligans are known for their peaceful fanaticism, UniSport doesn’t take any risks by offering superior footwear choices and an exceptional shopping experience. It was clear from the moment we began talking with the UniSport team that they are committed to innovate for the benefit of Internet shoppers across the Nordic region, and Shoefitr is proud to partner with them in their mission.
Shoefitr has already received great acclaim from Unisport.dk shoppers since being installed on the site a bit over a month ago:
“As a sporting good e-tailer striving to provide the best customer experience we felt an obligation to help our users with the problem of finding their right size in shoes. The problem is widely acknowledged as a barrier to e-commerce, and in the market of soccer boots, the right size means everything. We believe Shoefitr, with its powerful 3D graphics of scanned shoes, makes our customers happier and more confident when they purchase soccer boots online. We have high expectations about our cooperation with Shoefitr, and are pleased to be one of the first adapters within the soccer footwear industry.”
Erik Braanstrom, Operations Manager
We at Shoefitr are both excited and nervous about our expansion to Denmark—it’s gratifying to help Danes improve their soccer skills by guiding them to their best fitting shoes, but we still hope the US team beats Denmark in the next World Cup.
