Covered in this report

The report looks at purchases of shoes for adults and children and uses ONS (Office for National Statistics) consumer spending data, which covers all retail channels – both specialist and nonspecialist (eg clothing stores, department stores, sports shops, supermarkets, internet pureplayers, catalogue retailers, markets, etc.).
This report covers the following footwear categories:
- All footwear including trainers.
“It has been a disappointing 2018 for footwear, with very little growth in value terms. The market has undoubtedly been affected by the current political uncertainty in the UK and people have been less willing to spend. Therefore, retailers offering value for money have performed better than others. The unpredictable weather continues to have a negative effect on the growth of footwear, with retailers failing to come up with strategies that effectively combat this issue. Once again we see that the popularity of trainers has been driving any growth within the market, and as a result sports specialists have seen their share of the footwear market grow, while specialists have struggled.”
- Chana Baram, Retail Analyst
This report will look at the following areas:
- Importance of getting online right
- More innovation needed in the sector
- Growing demand for sustainable footwear
