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!
THE CHANGING RETAIL ENVIRONMENT FOR FOOTWEAR
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?
