User Interviews

Research

To understand better our problem area, we identified our target users and conducted user interviews on four users ages between 30-45, two male and two female with more than two kids.


For the user interview, I focused on trying to understand how the website can be beneficial for them, what is their experience with the existing shopping experience at the store and how can we improve it.  

 

INSIGHTS 

4/4

Users try to go as fewer times a year to buy shoes for all the family.

Had encounter issues with availability, so they need to spend a long time visiting many shoe stores to find all the shoes they need. 

Users had struggled to find the sizes they need for the models they like. 

Users don't shop online.
