Footwear purchase trend in the United Kingdom (UK) 2005-2018 Consumer spending on footwear in the UK demonstrated a gradual annual increase since 2005. In 2018, expenditure on footwear was worth 10.5 British pounds, which was only a slight decline from 2017. Most recent data on UK households shows that majority of footwear purchases took place in outlets, including online channels of large supermarket chains.
Physical stores for footwear lose out

Spending on footwear goes up every year in the UK, but the number of retail stores for footwear displays the opposite trend. In the past 10 years, more than 800 enterprises selling footwear and leather goods in the UK disappeared. Considering the share of retail sales made online in this segment, the decline in the number of stores doesn’t come as a surprise.

Online shopping for footwear

Consumers move towards online in their footwear purchases, and for reasons other than mere convenience. A survey conducted in 2018 in the UK revealed that a wider variety of available products and cheaper prices were what gave online shopping an advantage over physical stores in the eyes of consumers.
