Aprisindo Indonesian Footwear Association for Indonesian shoe manufacturers announced that domestic shoe manufacturers had acquired additional orders worth US $360 million from six international and important footwear brands.
US-based, Nike Inc and New Balance; France-based, Lacoste, Japan's Mizuno and Adidas Group and Puma from Germany are the six international key footwear brands, which have placed their future orders with Indonesian shoe manufacturers, owing to quality assurance that they received from these goods.
As per leader of Aprisindo, Marga Singgih, the international purchasers found Indonesian shoe goods, to be of a far better quality than those produced from Vietnam and China.
With the World Cup for football championship being held in South Africa later this month, the demand for shoes has further increased, added Marga. Almost 70 percent of the sports shoes required for the championship will be delivered by Indonesia.
More so, also helping the Indonesian shoe manufacturers is the duty imposed on imports of shoe from Vietnam and China by key buying countries across the globe.
