By Product, the Sport shoes segment is projected to dominate the market size in 2024

In the Premium Shoes Market, the offline distribution channel segment generates substantial revenue through sales in specialty stores, including brand-owned and multi-brand outlets, apparel and fashion accessories stores, sports equipment retailers, hypermarkets, supermarkets, and convenience stores, as well as clubhouse stores and department stores. However, this segment has experienced a gradual revenue decline due to the growing trend towards online shopping. To counteract this, vendors are expanding their physical retail presence in local and regional markets. Premium shoe manufacturers predominantly sell their products through specialty stores and various retail formats, leading to increased competition. Retailers are implementing strategic business approaches, such as competitive pricing and extensive product ranges, to remain competitive and mitigate the decreasing demand for traditional brick-and-mortar shopping.

By Distribution Channel, Offline  segment is expected to hold the largest market size for the year 2024

In the global premium shoes market, the segment for sports shoes held the largest market share in 2023, contributing significantly to the overall revenue. Factors driving this growth include a high concentration of players in developed and emerging economies, a vast array of SKUs (Stock Keeping Units), the expanding scope of international and regional sports tournaments worldwide, and the rising health consciousness among individuals leading to increased gym and health club memberships. As a result, the demand for sports shoes, including cleats, running shoes, court game shoes, gym and training shoes, athleisure, hiking, walking, aerobics, golf, and cricket shoes, is projected to surge, resulting in substantial growth in both volume and value turnover by the end of the forecast period.
