In total, about 5000 shoe factories operate in the country, most of which are small and medium-sized enterprises, employing more than 15 thousand people.

Despite the fact that the footwear industry itself accounts for about 2% of Italian GDP, this is a very important component of the Made in Italy brand.

The leading importers of Italian shoes are France, the USA, Germany, Switzerland, the UK and the UAE, while the latter is the fastest growing market.

“In the past few years, sales of Italian shoes in the UAE have risen sharply, reaching around 2015, 135 million euros in 5.
