Virtual Series: Fall Footwear E-Learning Episode 3

Join episode 3 of our new virtual series as we discuss footwear issues in a 4 episode e-learning series!

Virtual Learning Series Announced!

AAFA will present one of our heritage programs, the Footwear Workshop, normally hosted at New Balance, as a virtual e-learning series in 2020!

Join us for our new Fall Footwear E-Learning Series where we will cover sustainability, product safety & compliance, the changing retail environment, and trade policy. These four episodes will be released over four weeks this fall! 

Footwear retail trends shifted as a result of the pandemic. To plan for your business, you need to understand how these trends could continue to shift. China is several months ahead of the U.S.- let’s look at what is happening there and see what data we can identify and classify. 

This episode will cover:
Pre-COIVD trends
Current trends
What’s happening with retail in China and what could that mean for the U.S.?
What types of footwear is being purchased and how are consumers getting it?
