Uniqlo launches shoe line

Uniqlo, a Japanese casual wear brand, has announced the launch of its shoe line.

As the company, owned by Japan's Fast Retailing Co Ltd, said in a statement, "The addition to the shoe collection will allow shoppers to fully coordinate their look according to individual style and preference."

The brand has already begun selling shoes in China and South Korea (its most important markets after Japan), as well as in the United States. Since June, the company plans to begin sales in France.

According to a company representative, Uniqlo will analyze demand in these markets before deciding on the possible implementation of this idea in other places.

Overseas development is critical to Fast Retailing's goal of becoming the world's largest apparel retailer by 2020, overtaking Inditex SA, which owns Zara, Hennes & Mauritz AB (H&M) and Gap Inc. She expects the number of Uniqlo stores overseas to exceed the number of stores in Japan by the end of the year.

The Japanese shoe line will include lace-up sneakers and sneakers that will be sold in 5 colors at the price of 2,990 yen (25 dollars).
