Leader in Personalized Classic & Contemporary Footwear Experiences

Fashion and Apparel


Beren Shoes is a multichannel retailer of upscale shoes. In this environment, it is critical to look "larger than life" and be able to adapt and move quickly. The company's eCommerce department found that the existing site made these goals difficult to achieve. It was more of a clearinghouse to liquidate shoes at the end of each season, rather than a top-of-the-line eCommerce site that allowed the team to bring Beren's upscale brand to life online.

As a long-time customer, (I can assert that) KalioCommerce’s platform provides the tools, and services we need to deeply engage our customers online.

With KalioCommerce as its eCommerce partner, Beren regularly achieves double-digit year-over-year revenue growth — an impressive feat in the hyper-competitive shoe market. This growth can be attributed to several factors. Beren Shoes can quickly integrate new features into their eCommerce site including homepage video elements, rich graphics, and a natural path to purchase. Visitors are now presented with a clear menu of options, from which they can narrow down their choices by shoe size, color, width, designer, style, heel height, and more. Most importantly, KalioCommerce contributes to Beren's long-term success as a mid-sized retailer by deeply engaging customers online. This, at the end of the day, is what drives revenue.
