By integrating with Volumental’s footwear recommendation algorithms and
retail 3D scanning experience, Wiivv now makes its custom-fit,

“Until today, brands seeking custom fit technology had to choose whether
to invest in retail or mobile, and consumers had to navigate two
separate worlds,” said Wiivv co-founder and CEO Shamil Hargovan. “We
believe the future of consumer retail is channel agnostic. With our
world-class partner, Volumental, it is now possible to bring the digital
science of comfort and customization anywhere, giving consumers flexible
yet consistent on-ramps to custom products made using Wiivv Fit

“Customers have been telling us they want the freedom to recommend both
off-the-shelf and custom footwear, in retail and online,” said Moritz
Schiebold, Volumental CEO. “We’ve worked hard to deliver that over the
past year by expanding our omnichannel offerings and teaming up with
best-in-class customization partners like Wiivv.”

this past weekend, where more than 100,000 runners, supporters and race
fans had the opportunity to get their feet scanned in less than five
