To be honest, as a non-user of said product, I have no idea what this is.

But I have two initial thoughts of what the ads might be about:

A shoe print as we're talking about extra comfortable walking shoes.
A 'pad' for women who would rather not use a tampon (while walking around and doing their day-to-day stuff).

Are either of those correct? As nothing clarifies this in the ad.

I mean its a very nice concept for an audience who knows about the product - but a bit weak in bringing in new customers.

I'm not 'so sure' I should look up who and what Kotex is... to get the ad. Its all hanging a bit much on the assumption there is an audience out there who 100% know their brand.

one should not take life so seriously - as one will not come out of it alive.

Sometimes you have to let the great visual concept go, and just answer the brief. This is one of those times.

Love the survey map concept. Ha ha ha.

I'm a woman and it didn't click what this was for.
Another ad with pretty pictures but no selling/promotional strategy.
I'm guessing the brand is much better known in Mumbai than it is over here.
