[ Challenges ]
best foot forward
We were tasked with creating a single application for numerous countries and languages.
Collaboration across continents
We needed to work closely with multiple partners – with stakeholders in both Europe and the US.
Balancing disparate goals
Our solution had to bridge the gap between eobuwie's usability goals and business objectives.
Flying Bisons adopted a non-standard design process that helped the partners collaborate in an adaptive manner.
They were also capable of carrying out high-quality research.

[ Key insigths ]
eobuwie: for anyone
As part of our research, we conducted a series of in-depth interviews (IDIs) with eobuwie users. We asked them what they associate the brand with, what their shopping habits are, and what they like and dislike about e-commerce apps in general.
The key findings
The eobuwie brand is deeply associated with quality leather shoes – and the colour green.
Instagram is the top source of footwear inspiration.
Filters and categories are two of the main elements that influence whether an app is liked or disliked.
eobuwie is perceived as a place for everyone. Somewhere anyone can buy shoes – whether it’s for themselves, their kids, or their older relatives.
[ In-depth interviews ]
in real user
With our desk research and IDIs complete, we set to work categorising eobuwie’s app users into four main personas, based on retention potential and revenue per user.
We described the needs of each persona with care and detail. And we gathered information about how each persona buys, what inspires them, which apps they use, and what drives them during the buying process.
“I like shopping, another pair won't hurt.”
Customers who shop for entertainment. Loyalty programs, cool features and attractive product presentations are what keep them coming back to the app.Chess players
“I’m buying sandals on the end of the season when they are cheaper and I will use them next year.”
Most price sensitive, promotion driven customers, so even though they are loyal to eobuwie now, they can switch if a more convenient shopping app shows up.Shoe collectors
“Converses are a cyclical buy, as riding to a station to tank up.”
Brand and type of shoes lovers, who won’t hesitate to spend a lot of money on a pair of shoes.100% functionals
“If I don’t have to buy shoes, I wouldn’t.”
Customers used to shops and apps, who buy rarely. Their loyalty can be bought with features and services simplifying their shopping experiences. eSize.me can be such a proposition but they can have trust issues about it.
Taking the esize.me experience to the next level.
Encouraging users to evaluate products by simplifying the process.
Connecting the mobile experience to that of the traditional store.

A new app that’s fun,
fresh and more efficient
eobuwie are passionate about new technology – but the old version of their app didn’t fully reflect that. We worked closely with Product Inc and the eobuwie design team to create a visually appealing, intuitive app that fully captures the brand’s vision and strategy.
“Working with eobuwie was an opportunity for Flying Bisons to do what we do best – unleash their digital potential to provide a world-class customer experience. Together, we created a state-of-the-art mobile app used by millions.
