According to representatives of the Obuv Rossii GC, this year the situation in the shoe market is stabilizing: if last year the consumption of shoes decreased by 18-20%, then this year there is an increase. So, for all retail chains that are part of Obuv Rossii, the increase in sales in pairs for 9 months of 2016 amounted to 10%. This is due, among other things, to the effect of deferred demand, when buyers who put off buying shoes for a year or two, returned to stores this year.
Obuv Rossii continues to develop its own production: the company has developed a line of tactical footwear that can withstand overloads and plans to launch it in production at the end of the year. In September, Obuv Rossii signed a contract with Largos for the production and supply of 200 thousand pairs of military shoes in the amount of 500 million rubles in 2017. In the fall, Obuv Rossii 1,5 times expanded production facilities to 5,8 thousand square meters. In new premises the company will place a workshop for the production of special shoes and new cutting and sewing systems.
