wannaby has recently released the most precise and accurate shoe AR try-on technology that was acknowledged by industry leaders and AR professionals all over the world. in january 2019 the team launched an AR try-on sneakers app – wanna kicks. similarly, people can pick the ace sneakers of their choice on screen using the gucci iOS app, point their mobile device’s camera at their feet and virtually ‘try-on’ the selected pair.


‘the ace sneaker, with its ever-changing decorations, has become a canvas for gucci through which to demonstrate its delight in creative decoration and embellishment,’ the italian fashion house explains. ‘as such it is also the ideal vehicle through which customers can express their own personalities.’
