Our solution for Design
Before designing the solution, our team went through many other similar portals online. As there were no direct competitors for this specific domain, we moved to mobile-based e-commerce apps. The trending features were taken into consideration.
Considering how amazing this application can get and how viral can it go among the sneaker-lovers community, we had to introduce and design features in a way that nothing was missed out. The good part was that we already had an idea of how a sneaker-lover would perceive this app. We knew exactly what all features would play the magic. So, we managed to have scrolls, tabs and tiled views in order to get a comprehensive, subtle and all-in-one app stuffed with amazing features.
