"From the moment I sold my first pair, I realized how important it was for customers to purchase the product that best fitted their needs — shoes that both looked great and felt great," says Gerler, who was only 11 years old at the time. "Shoes quite literally provide the foundation that gets us through each and every day. That’s why we at OnlineShoes.com are obsessed with enhancing our customers’ lives with comfort and confidence…from the ground up."
Similarly, the company’s mission is anchored by a trio of brand pillars that form the foundation of OnlineShoes.com’s retail philosophy: ‘Heritage,’ which builds on the company’s history; ‘Merchandise,’ with a focus on comfortable, stylish footwear provided by the more than 250 top-quality brands featured on the site in plenty of hard-to-find sizes; and ‘Shopping Experience.’
- Real-time shopping assistance messaging that helps customers correctly enter field information during checkout to avoid error messages.
- A more efficient shopping cart, including an early, easier implementation of promo codes and gift certificates.
- A clickable progress bar that easily orients customers throughout the checkout process.
- A clear security insignia and ‘confidence zone.’
- The ability to see not only the cost throughout the process but a final total before entering any personal information.
Additionally, the entire site has been given an updated look with a contemporary new logo and color palette, redesigned navigation for even easier refinement, and 60% larger product images on search pages for better, clearer browsing.
While these enhancements have significantly elevated the shopping experience, the anchor of this third brand pillar remains the company’s outstanding customer service. OnlineShoes.com is and always has been more than a place to buy shoes. It’s where people go for comfort, style and confidence, with a level of personalized service that makes it still feel like the friendly neighborhood shoe store of its roots.
OnlineShoes.com consistently receives the highest marks for customer satisfaction. It was named a winner in the 11th annual Bizrate Circle of Excellence Awards, an honor recognizing only 2.7% of online retailers in the extensive Bizrate Insights North American Retail Network that provide outstanding customer experiences as rated by their own customers.
