With the growing demand for luxury shoes among the millennial population worldwide, many luxury footwear brands have started catering to the casual shoe category to gain the attention of the consumers.

The COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak is likely to reduce the demand for luxury footwear across the globe.Store closures due to lockdown measures have resulted in grim consequences, with sales of footwear and accessories from both offline and online channels declining consistently.
For instance, sales data reported for Amazon between mid-February and mid-March 2020 showed that apparel and footwear sales fell by an average of 40 percentage points. Consumers have become more conscious of their spending habits and tend to avoid buying frivolous or luxury products, which is a major challenge for the market.

A large number of women are opting for unique and luxury footwear to experience products of high quality and portray a certain image in the society.
Offline distribution channels dominated the market and accounted for a 75.9% share of the global revenue in 2019. Wide product range, offers, and discounts attracting a larger number of consumers are the key strategies opted by such channels to increase revenue and footfall in any store.

North America dominated the market for luxury footwear and accounted for 29.1% share of the global revenue in 2019.
