An Overview of the Footwear Market in Germany

Pent-up demand fuelled footwear spending after the pandemic as consumers returned to social gatherings and updated their wardrobes.

Now however, inflationary pressures are curbing spending, with consumers increasingly looking for deals.

  • Footwear Market Size in Germany: In 2023, the footwear market in Germany generated €9.09bn in sales.

Footwear Retailing Germany: What Consumers Want and Why

  • Inflation & the Footwear Market Germany: Squeezed incomes continue to impact footwear sales as German consumers remain price sensitive, with 64% of shoppers waiting for sales before buying. This causes brand loyalty to take a back seat as over half of buyers believe that price is more important than brand.
  • Opportunities in the Footwear Market Germany: Fashion is perceived as a form of self-expression and 59% of German footwear buyers aged 16 to 24 would be willing to pay more for limited editions. Footwear retailers can tap into that perception and attract modern buyers through emotional marketing and innovative designs or collaborations.
  • Footwear Retailing Germany – Online vs Offline: Online sales are putting pressure on physical stores to attract customers. Adding value by enhancing the shopping experience through expanded product ranges or additional services tied to loyalty programs, like repair and care services, appeal to consumers’ sense of quality and comfort, and can encourage a return to in-store shopping.
