The vFit App (Virtual Shoe Fitting)

Although I’ve been a fan of the online shopping experience for many years now, for some reason I’ve excepted clothing. Trying things on always seemed more reasonable than sending things back if they didn’t fit.

The pandemic forced a bit of a rethink, and I’ve been trying out various ‘virtual fitting‘ (assessing the size using AR on your ‘phone) apps. Curious to see if they’re solid enough to remove that exception.

First up – vFit – a virtual shoe fitting app. Free to use (they partner with a number of retailers, who pay for the traffic). Interesting idea.
