I have imported 5.000 products to my drupal-commerce website.I want the user to be able to navigate fast on all of these products,so I just figured out that I need to make somehow a filter or a search that when the user chooses/selects some of the features of the product the result will be only the products with these features.How can I manage to do this on Drupal 7 and Drupal Commerce(Commerce kickstart?)
You can do it in the view.
Select a filter criteria for example "size", then click on expose filter.
This permit you create a custom search box as well clicking on "exposed filter in block" under Advanced in view.

I've always used Views to reach filter functionality.
But, it seems, there is a simpler solution.
