Wednesday, January 13, 2021 - 13:59English
“Due to yesterday’s prognosis from the German government about the further foreseeable COVID-19 measures for the coming weeks and our subsequent talks with the responsible authorities, it is becoming clear that the important planning security we need to hold an event at the beginning of March 2021 is unfortunately not yet guaranteed. We have therefore decided at short notice to postpone the dates of the next physical edition of Gallery SHOES & Fashion.” Ulrike Kähler Managing Director of Igedo Company

THE ITALIAN FOOTWEAR INDUSTRY: THE FIRST NINE MONTHS OF 2020 SEE A DROP IN PRODUCTION (-29.4%) AND IN SALES (-33.1%)

Thursday, December 31, 2020 - 11:22English
Siro Badon: “Reintroduction of restrictive measures, compromised Christmas shopping and postponed recovery of demand will have serious repercussions for a sector that has seen a further drop in the number of active enterprises (-101 in the first 9 months of the year) and employees (down by about 2,600) in 2020. If component manufacturers are taken into account, the balance is even more negative: -231 enterprises and -3453 employees”. In the third quarter the dynamics recorded in the Italian footwear industry were somewhat less unfavourable, but still far from positive. This is the picture that emerges from the figures processed by the Confindustria Moda Research Centre on behalf of Assocalzaturifici, revealing a double-digit drop in the turnover of the companies surveyed during the period under examination (-26.6%). Only 14% of interviewees declared that they had exceeded, or at least matched, their turnover in the third quarter of 2019, while more than half of the panel reported a drop of -20 to -50%. These figures were matched by Istat's industrial production index, which registered -17.4% in the months between July and September. The drop since the start of the year is considerable, in all forms.

INDUSTRIA CALZATURIERA ITALIANA: NEI PRIMI NOVE MESI DEL 2020 IN CALO SIA LA PRODUZIONE (-29,4%) CHE IL FATTURATO (-33,1%)

Thursday, December 31, 2020 - 11:14Italian
Siro Badon: “La reintroduzione di misure restrittive, gli acquisti natalizi compromessi e la ripartenza della domanda di nuovo rinviata avranno gravi ripercussioni sulle capacità di tenuta del settore, che ha visto ridursi ulteriormente nel 2020 il numero di imprese attive (-101 nei primi 9 mesi) e di addetti (sceso di circa 2.600 unità). Considerando anche i produttori di componentistica, i saldi negativi salgono a -231 imprese e -3453 addetti”. Il comparto calzaturiero in Italia ha sperimentato nel terzo trimestre dinamiche un po’ meno sfavorevoli, ma comunque ancora non positive. E’ quanto emerge dai dati elaborati dal Centro Studi di Confindustria Moda per Assocalzaturifici, che evidenziano nel periodo esaminato cali a doppia cifra nel fatturato delle aziende raggiunte dall’indagine (-26,6%). Solo il 14% degli intervistati ha dichiarato di aver superato, o quantomeno eguagliato, il fatturato del terzo trimestre 2019, mentre più della metà del panel ha denunciato un calo compreso tra il -20 e il - 50%. Dati che trovano riscontro nell’indice della produzione industriale di Istat, che ha registrato in luglio-settembre un -17,4%. Il calo da inizio anno resta considerevole, in tutte le variabili.

THE DiaSHOE PROJECT: IMPROVING THE QUALITY OF LIFE OF PEOPLE WITH DIABETES THROUGH PREVENTION AND SKILLS

Saturday, December 12, 2020 - 12:30English
On Dec. 4, 2020, the European Footwear Confederation and its partners from Czechia, Germany, Poland, Portugal, Spain, and Romania kicked off the new Erasmus+ project DiaSHOE. Diabetes currently affects 463 million people worldwide and complications in the lower limbs caused by the disease are frequent: it is estimated that 15% of people suffering from diabetes either suffer or risk suffering from such complications. One of the main causes of the so-called Diabetic Foot Syndrome (DFS) is closely associated with footwear: 80% of DFS complications are linked to the use of inappropriate footwear. The project intends to support footwear manufacturers, patients, healthcare workers, and shoe-store clerks to tackle this issue through two main avenues: prevention and skills development.
