Not without optimism

Most experts still have a pessimistic view of the current market situation. But among the players themselves there are many optimists who rely in their forecasts on real indicators and their own experience.

“In general, in the shoe market in 2016, we expect a slight positive trend in pairs - on average, growth can be by 3-5%, which is explained primarily by the effect of deferred demand - those buyers who saved on shoes last year will return to shops, - said Irina Poddubnaya, head of marketing and online sales, GC “Shoes of Russia”. “Shoes are a product that is second only to food in terms of demand, and in Russia, the consumption of shoes (2,2 pairs per person per year) is now close to the level of physical wear and tear, so there is nowhere to fall.”
