The American Apparel & Footwear Association (AAFA) released its ShoeStats 2010 report, a snapshot of the U.S. footwear industry market trends for 2009. ShoeStats 2010 examines business and trade information related to U.S. footwear consumption, production, employment, imports, and retail prices.

“As we expected, a tough economic climate prevented shoppers from going to malls and shopping centers in 2009,” said AAFA President and CEO Kevin M. Burke. “Even though Americans purchased nearly 2 billion pairs of shoes in 2009, overall footwear consumption decreased 8.2 percent over 2008.”

“The U.S. footwear industry has spent the last few years battling increases in production, transportation, and other supply chain costs while trying to not pass the buck onto their consumers at a time when they can least afford it,” said Burke. “The U.S. Congress must do its part and take immediate action to pass the Affordable Footwear Act (H.R. 4316/S. 730) during the upcoming lame duck session before adjourning. This common-sense legislation would eliminate the hidden and regressive import taxes that only drive up the prices on low-cost and children's shoes. Its passage directly benefits hardworking American families and supports jobs here in the United States.”

The information in ShoeStats 2010 is derived in part from AAFA's annual Trends: An Annual Statistical Analysis of the U.S. Apparel and Footwear Industries publication. Along with ShoeStats, Trends is one of the most comprehensive and authoritative sources for U.S. apparel and footwear industry statistics. The 2009 Trends report is set to be released later this month.
