To reach out to more consumers, German shoe retailer, Goertz, has gone virtual with their augmented reality 'pop-up' shoe stores.

They installed virtual stores at crowded public places such as train stations and invited customers to 'try on' a pair of shoes.

Using three Microsoft Kinect cameras and a large screen, they would scan and render 3D shoes onto the customer's feet--allowing customers to see the shoes like they were actually wearing them.

Customers could try on different models of shoes in different sizes before making a purchase through their smart phones via a QR code that will be displayed on the screen.

Could this be the shoe stores of the future?
