As we all agree that a good pair of shoes can make or break an attire. When customers slide on a new pair of shoes, they usually are willing to pay more for- whether that be for the softness and comfort it provides, or a particular brand- and this uniqueness is reflected on the store design too. Just like this beautiful Punjab Boot House designed by Ar.Kamal Roop Singh Maan, the founder of KR Architecture Studio.

This 1900 sq ft multi branded footwear store is located on the main street of a busy crossing MP Nagar, Bhopal. This is the fourth store in the city and the architect tried to give it a brand identity. It showcases footwear and accessories of various brands. SURFACES REPORTER (SR) takes you on a virtual tour to this boot house.
The Store Facade
The facade treatment is done using Composite marble and HPL sheets with large fixed glass.
The store is elevated from the main street by almost three feet which gives it a wider frontage from the street allowing complete transparency for the window shoppers.
Calming Colour Palette
A soothing colour scheme is created with use of materials such as Canadian pine wood, veneer, white acrylic surface, keeping the materials very minimal, and adding contrast by use of coloured acrylic sheets in few of the display shelves.
Well-lit Product Display
Each shelf of the display is illuminated with light below to ensure the best display of footwear.
The materials and finishes are repeated in every section of the store and accentuated by the use of mirrors.
The rack display is kept minimal which makes it handy and easy to choose the footwear to mix and match, giving a perfect visual setting for the customers.
The flow pattern of the store is quite simple and self guided which allows a free access to display of men, women, and child sections, the centre space has sitting and generally used as trial areas.
