Footwear Retailing - Europe - April 2019
Covered in this report
This report series covers the footwear market in the five largest Western European countries – the UK, France, Germany, Italy and Spain. The focus of the reports is on the footwear specialists. The store based non-specialists, such as department stores, are not covered in detail although they are looked at briefly in the Channels of Distribution sections and also in our consumer research. But the report does look more closely at the impact of online in the sector and the major online players.
Our exclusive consumer research spans all five countries. In each of these markets, we asked consumers about:
- Where they shop for footwear, online and in-store
- Attitudes to shopping for footwear.
- Additional questions were asked to consumers for the UK report.
“Demand for footwear has grown almost everywhere in the last five years, but unlike in so many other retail sectors, the footwear specialists, and certainly the larger multiples, have been able to broadly maintain their share of sales. Many of them have expanded their own online propositions, expanded their store bases and been able to meet the online challenge head on. That challenge is not going to suddenly disappear, but the recent performance makes us more optimistic about the prospects for the specialists over the next five years.”
- Richard Perks, Director of Retail Research
