This report covers the footwear market in France, with a focus on footwear specialists. The report does not cover non-specialists, such as department stores, in detail although these are looked at briefly in the Channels of Distribution section and also in our consumer research. The report combines analysis of the market in France, including market sizes, specialists’ sales and forecasts, along with our in-depth consumer data, which analyses shoppers’ behaviour.
For the consumer research we asked questions on the following topics:
For the purpose of this report, Mintel has used the following definitions:
Consumer spending: The total amount spent by France households (including sales tax) through all retail channels – both specialist and non-specialist. This covers all footwear categories, including trainers, but excludes game specific footwear (e.g. football boots, ski-boots) and orthopaedic footwear.
Retail sales: total sales of all types of footwear (excluding sales tax) via stores and directly to the consumer by specialist retailers of footwear. It includes online sales of these retailers where the majority of sales are in bricks and mortar outlets.
Channels of distribution: Mintel estimates of the proportions of spending on footwear via other channels, including the grocers, mixed goods retailers and non-store retailers.
“Footwear retailing in France is changing as non-specialists, such as sports, fashion and online-only retailers, are capturing more spending. The middle market and those retailers stuck on the high street or in shopping centres are being squeezed as consumers’ shopping preferences are changing. Selling shoes online can be challenging, but as shoppers become more accustomed to shopping this way across the board, footwear retailers need to find ways to evolve their models and find ways to keep customers engaged. Comfort and quality are top motivations, and ethical concerns are becoming more important. These could open up opportunities for retailers of footwear to distinguish themselves in a busy market”
