At the end of April, the presentation of the fall-winter season collections of 2011, two brands of sports shoes WBL and ANTA, was completed. According to Mila - Wholesale Shoes company, the results of the presentations showed a decrease in sales by an average of 30% compared to the same period of the 2010 year. For example, orders for ТМ WBL totaled a little more than 16 thousand pairs, for ТМ ANTA - more than 13 thousand pairs.
“In this regard, trade is expected to remain with large balances from the current season, and applications for the second half will be greatly truncated. Accordingly, we will send suppliers less orders for children's sports shoes in bulk, and the supply of goods will also be in limited quantities. Therefore, we can assume a certain shortage of shoes for sports and outdoor activities in the second half of the 2011 year, ”says Alexander Borodin, manager of Mila - Wholesale Shoes. The company believes that the shortage of sports shoes will begin to be felt already before the start of the school season.Mila company is one of the three largest players in the shoe market in the Urals Federal District and is a leader in the wholesale of children's shoes.
