Modern shoe store experiences are characterized by over-the-top merchandising and innovative customization options that allow consumers to easily find or create the ideal product for them.

First seen in the stores of global athletic brands Adidas and Nike, gait-training treadmills that allow shoppers to test out sneakers and assess their running form. By allowing consumers to educate themselves on a product's best uses before purchase, they are more likely to be satisfied with the purchase.

In addition to innovative product tests, the contemporary consumer is also looking for a shoe store experience marked by awe-inspiring features that blend abstractism and function. In particular, grandiose merchandising that transforms a retail space into one that feels like the experience of an art gallery.
