"Footwear in Japan" Published

Recently published research from Euromonitor International, "Footwear in Japan", is now available at Fast Market Research


Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/03/2014 -- Footwear in Japan grew by 1% in current value terms in 2013. Women?s footwear outperformed the other two categories, with 2% value growth. This positive performance was driven by the popularity of short boots and trainers. Short boots increased sales in the autumn and winter of 2013. Short boots called ?booties? have been a popular trend in the past few years. In 2013, other trends in apparel, such as coloured trousers and patterned leggings boosted demand for short boots, as shorts boots do not cover the colour and pattern of leggings. Thus, major players in women?s footwear focused their marketing strategies on selling short boots rather than long boots, which in turn resulted in falling sales of long boots.

Competitive Landscape:

adidas Japan KK remained the leading player in footwear in 2013, driven by the continuing jogging and running boom. In addition, with the growing FIFA World Cup and football fever, adidas benefited because it is an exclusive kit supplier for the Japanese national football team. Other international sports footwear brands, such as Nike Japan Co Ltd and Puma Corp, as well as domestic sportswear brands, such as Mizuno Corp and Asics Corp, rank as leading players.

Industry Prospects:

Footwear in Japan is expected to register a constant value CAGR of 1% over the forecast period, driven by the positive performance of women?s footwear. In particular, women?s pumps and heels are expected to grow, along with strong growth in women?s suits. The growth of women?s suits is driven by the popularity of suits for new graduates who are looking for a job, and the growing demand for Cool Biz suits among working women. With the shrinking men?s suits market in Japan, men?s suits retailers are expanding their offerings of women?s suits. Haruyama Business Affairs Co Ltd launched Washable Pumps for female students who have to walk for long hours when job hunting. The brand became a huge hit because they are machine washable, and have antimicrobial and deodorant properties. More such innovative products that meet the potential demands of female students and business workers are expected to be introduced into the market over the forecast period.
