What are the labeling requirements for footwear?

AAFA has created a labeling matrix to aid members in navigating specific apparel and footwear labeling regulations. AAFA’s International Apparel & Footwear Labeling Matrix provides a general overview of the mandatory labeling requirements for adult apparel and footwear in 37 countries. This member-only resource is a direct response to input from AAFA members who have and are seeking to expand their business internationally and may need additional help navigating international labeling requirements.

The only requirement for labels on footwear sold in the U.S. is to have the country of origin on imported products. (However, most in the industry do include material content).

Footwear products that contain wool, leather, or fur have additional requirements that can be found here.
