Crafting Stylish Solutions for Timeless, Classic FOOTWEAR

A Trendy, Modern Look Delivers a Premium Shopping Experience on Shopify Plus

Andre Assous, a Vida Shoes International brand known for creating innovative and comfortable footwear with modern styling and a classic touch, was on Shopify’s Commerce Platform when Vida Shoes’ leading kid’s shoe brand, Stride Rite, migrated to Shopify Plus in December 2021. However, not all Shopify builds are created equal and Andre Assous wanted Stride Rite’s code base, CMS, speed, custom theme, app integrations, and more.

Following a site audit and a review of the success of Shopify Plus with Stride Rite, Andre Assous decided to leverage the new Shopify 2.0 framework, utilizing Stride Rite’s theme and site features, providing a cleaner code base with better app management, improving site speed and performance, and optimizing customer and brand experience. The new website revitalized the Andre Assous brand personality, providing customers with a highly visual buyer journey that engages shoppers and offers world-class style in today’s footwear trends.

Andre Assous’ new website features a digital brand refresh, elevating the brand to capture the timeless, chique, stylish, and trendy nature of its footwear to a social and digital-first consumer market. With a unified tech stack used across multiple Vida Shoes’ brands, new integrations with growth marketing partners, and a platform built to scale to other Vida Shoes’ brand, Andre Assous is now focused on marketing growth with its stylish, inspiring, high-fashion brand experience.
