A German 3D scan, a Finnish software and the French Know-How
Measurements are taken through a 3D scan : a digital camera rotates around your feet and takes more than 100 pictures to obtain 14 key measurements. The process is really fast and more accurate than manual measurements : within two minutes the 3D image of your feet appears. Each foot is analyzed using four variables: length, width, thickness at the toes and instep.
And since sensitivity is as important as measurements and comfort is also a matter of feeling, a “test shoes” will identify whether a person likes adjusted shoes or rather prefers to fell a little off.
