Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/16/2014 -- The increasing consumer confidence levels and higher consequent spending on apparel and footwear as a result of the economic recovery are the principle underpinnings of the growth in footwear in 2013. This trend has spurred on spending on footwear in 2013 in the UAE, along with the increasing popularity of Western-style dressing and fashion trends. These have resulted in more consumers being concerned with the maintenance of their external appearance and the wearing of suitably fashionable and trendy clothes and footwear, which in turn has led to an increase in purchasing footwear in terms of quantity and variety, in order to meet these requirements. The burgeoning appetite for premium and luxury purchases of apparel and footwear also impacted footwear growth in 2013.
