RunRepeat gives retailers exclusive access to implement +4 million reviews to own e-commerce stores

Empowering consumers and retailers alike, RunRepeat spearheads a radical disruption of the spiritless, limping shoe review industry.

Toledo, Ohio (May 14, 2019) – Addressing the relative lack of transparency in the shoe review industry,, the world’s largest shoe review site with over 4,244,692 users & 12,263 expert reviews, announced the soft release of its new “Corescore Initiative” this May.

By inserting a simple script, retailers can populate their product pages with all of RunRepeat’s reviews, and gain review stars in Google searches – a process that takes 10 minutes or less to implement.

Focused on helping online retailers increase conversion rates, RunRepeat’s Corescore Initiative provides savvy shoppers with all the information they need to make a purchase in one place. The new feature empowers both the consumer and retailer through access to thousands of trusted, in-depth expert reviews, and video reviews.

While most retail sites are aware of the profound impact of and need for reviews (e.g., 90% of consumers read online reviews before visiting a business, and 63% of customers are more likely to make a purchase if the site has reviews) few have the money or time to invest in high-quality reviews.

Whether buying shoes in person or online, consumers want confidence that the shoes they are buying are right for their needs. Without that assurance, they simply won’t act.

Research has found that reviews produce an average of 18% increase in sales (Reevoo), and a study by Forbes reported that 90% of customers said their purchase decision was influenced by online reviews.

Despite all this, the information provided by users through generic website review platforms and other paid review sites is usually sparse, vague, and lacking the substance needed to help consumers make informed choices.

With over 12,263 expert reviews, a thriving expert testing program involving extensive wear testing through vetted, veteran runners across the globe, and continuous feedback from its expansive user base, RunRepeat has become the destination for newbies and seasoned runners alike.

“We’ve had partners begging us for years to get this program running,” RunRepeat founder Jens Jakob Andersen discussed. “The Corescore initiative lets retailers focus on the user experiences while capitalizing on what we do best.”

Why pay for a handful of one to three sentence reviews that send customers back to Google, looking for more information? With the Corescore Initiative, Jens points out, you have access to the most comprehensive database of shoe reviews on the internet, all at a fraction of the cost.

Confident that the program will significantly increase conversion rates, RunRepeat is letting anyone try it out for free, no strings attached. Retailers interested in learning more and testing out the program can reach out to Bethany at

About RunRepeat: RunRepeat was founded in 2014 by Jens Jakob Andersen to bring transparency to the running shoe industry and restore the trust of customers wary of fake, lackluster reviews. Addressing the relative paucity of in-depth information on shoes, and proliferation of mis-information, the Corescore (a simple 0 to 100 rating) became its main product.
