New Topical Report on South Korean Footwear Market Published by

LONDON – The economic slump became a catalyst for growth in the footwear market in South Korea due to increased demand for comfort shoes as more people commuted to work by public transportation, bicycles and on foot. Combined with the well-being trend, many consumers tended to walk more. Furthermore, the adoption of casual business dress codes also helped the rapid growth.

Last year, the South Korean footwear market demonstrated a 4% increase owing to the popularity of functional footwear. Men’s footwear recorded the highest growth rate due to the good performance of sports footwear, while women’s sports footwear showed a lower value growth rate compared to men’s sports footwear at 5%.
