A project firmly anchored in the values of Sustainability, Breathability, Wellbeing and Technology GEOX  presents its new Xstore concept for the very first time.

The XStore design project is a clear indication of just how important advanced Technology (symbolised by the letter X) is to GEOX and it merges seamlessly with the other inspirational values of Italian Style, Contemporary Design, Sustainability and Wellbeing that Geox has always upheld.

The new design preserves and enhances any existing architectural features such as glass windows, columns, ceilings and exposed brickwork, working them all into the new concept. Green materials and exclusive finishes which bear witness to Italian creativity and fine craftsmanship. An instance of this is the entrance door pierced with circular cut-outs, a clever reference to the holes on GEOX soles, symbolising the airiness which welcomes visitors as they step into this invitingly breezy and clean natural atmosphere..

This is also emphasized with ceiling ventilators and special purifiers that improve air quality.

All the materials used -from the terracotta tiles to the natural wood- are compliant with Leed certification (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) and also perfectly in keeping with the company’s commitment to the environment and respect for society.

Here an entire range of vital touchpoints elegantly interact with each other in symbiosis and come together harmoniously to inspire, guide and assist customers in their shopping experience; physical sensation and digital technology enmesh and transform Geox space into real “shops of the future”.

WiFi and free charging stations located in the fitting rooms have been made available to customers where they can access the entire Geox catalogue.

This new concept is further proof of the huge importance that the Veneto-based company (holder of thirty-five exclusive patents and 10 more recent patent applications vouching for footwear breathability and water-tightness) has always given to technology.

This is a brand-new approach to retail. As soon as customers cross the threshold of a GEOX store, they breathe, see and absorb the values which inspire the corporate design philosophy and mission day by day, gaining insight into its immense motivation to constantly improve quality and performance. Its ultimate goal is to achieve day-to-day excellence, not only in terms of what the customers wear, but also in terms of real coherence between urban life and the ethics of sustainability.

All Geox’s collections and its patented technologies can be found in the stores, starting from the groundbreaking Nebula sneaker with its 3D-breathability system, then there is Amphibiox, a product line that ensures total water-tightness and breathability whatever the weather as well as the Cuoio line, a patented range which delivers a quintessential natural material like leather with all the qualities of water-tightness and breathability. Then, the kidswear range, specially designed for children to make sure that each step they take helps them to grow up healthy and strong. All the collections rest on Geox’s four guiding principles: wellbeing, quality, comfort and style.

Menswear and womenswear clothing collections are also on offer, a line of outerwear which benefits from Geox’s patented breathable technology.Il nuovo X-Store mette in risalto il connubio Breathing&Wellbeing svelando un’esperienza di acquisto innovativa e multisensoriale nella quale  la tecnologia coinvolge il consumatore a 360°.

Una famiglia completa di touchpoint elegantemente integrati, dinamici e interattivi, contribuisce in modo sinergico ad ispirare, guidare ed assistere i clienti durante la loro esperienza in negozio; ed è proprio l’integrazione tra sensazione fisica e tecnologia digitale a trasformare gli spazi GEOX in veri e propri “negozi del futuro”.
