Footwear is a huge and increasingly diversified business, driven by a

host of demographic, lifestyle and fashion trends. As a result, the

category is being segmented ever more finely as seen in the diversity of

mainstream footwear trends—from casual comfort to sexy stiletto. The

fact that, in recent years, a far greater range of styles has become

acceptable in the U.S. workplace. The liberalization of footwear norms

coincided with an era of greed and seemingly endless conspicuous

consumption where $150 sneakers and $500 pumps were easily consumed with

ever-expanding consumer credit.

However, with a new economic reality comes a paradigm shift in the

consumer mindset. For some consumers, charge now and pay later has been

replaced with pay now or don’t buy at all. Instead of feeling good about

expensive or ostentatious brands as they've in the past, many

consumers will increasingly feel good about getting the best value,

making the smartest choice. Not spending at all in 2009. The surge in

frugality has brought back a variety of money-saving behaviors from days

of yore, such as layaway and home cooked meals. Even cobblers are all

making a comeback.

Though the market for footwear in the U.S. grew at an annual rate of six

percent between 2004 and 2008, growth in 2008 was much more subdued at

less than two percent. For the footwear industry, an ongoing consumer

paradigm shift in attitudes toward more frugality and less conspicuous

consumption means high-flying fashion brands may suffer at the expense

of less expensive alternatives. But can the major marketers and

retailers adapt?

The U.S. Market for Footwear examines these questions and many

others by looking at the current market, trends, major brands.

consumer preferences. The report presents concise, thought provoking

analysis of various aspects of the eyewear industry and provides a

forecast for the market through 2013.
