Best Selling Shoes of 2008

Updated on October 9, 2010


Shoes That Sell

Working in a shoe warehouse that supplies over 80 stores throughout the United Kingdom, you get to know very quickly consumer habits, what's hot on the marketplace and what will become hot in the near future.

Every day shoes are sent from the warehouse to the stores and every day new shoes arrive at the warehouse from all over the world, womens shoes, mens shoes childrens and baby shoes.

High Heels have been flying off the shelves this year along with top designer names such as Armani, Prada, Dior, Ted Baker and Gucci.

Crocs since they first came onto the market have had their ups and downs but they keep regular sales all year round.

We all like to relax at home in a nice pair of comfy carpet slippers. there has been a surprising rise in the sales of clogs this year and a massive rise in shoes that are aimed at helping you to lose weight or to help you get fit.

Canvas pumps in various colors have had a massive boost in sales and sneakers such as Converse, Adidas, Nike, New balance, puma, sketchers and Lacoste are a consistent top selling shoe.

Open toed sandals for relaxing on the beach or at home also fly off the shelves including Havianas and Birkinstock.

Shop Around

Because of the "Credit crunch" many stores are slashing prices to get your custom, you can pick up the perfect shoes for you at great prices.

Designer Labels

The designer label, makes shoes more expensive, but the quality and workmanship that goes into making these shoes makes that extra money well spent there has been an influx of orders this year For Armani, Dior, Gucci and Prada, wearing these big names is like a status symbol to some people but they are usually geared toward the fashion concious rather than being worn for practicality or comfort.

Sneakers seem to be the order of the day this year and the top designers have had a roaring trade designer brand sneakers rather than for sporting use have been designed for the casual dresser and are an essential item to add to your wardrobe.

      Hey! jimmythejock,

      Do you have information as to who buys what? Obviously, I'm interested in the high heels.

      I don't own a pair of crocs (yet), but the picture of them reminds me of the LL Bean waterproof boots (can't remember exactly what they were called) I used to wear. These are hopefully more comfy and sounds like they are.
