Men's Footwear Expanding Like Crazy
It is not just your imagination, it seems men are having a “Cinderella” moment.
Men’s footwear is becoming one of the fastest-growing categories in an already growing men’s fashion market.
“Shoes are to men what bags are to women,” said one industry observer. Designers and are taking note too. Enter brands such as Lavin, Valentino, Balenciaga, Saint Laurent, Giueseppe and Christian Louboutin into the sneaker market, luxury sneakers, competing for shelf space along side longtime staples Nike and Adidas.
Even Jimmy Choo is set to introduce a men’s shoe line this fall.
