|Description:||Based on 2012 sourcing survey results from the FDRA (Footwear Distributors & Retailers of America), Matt Priest of FDRA and fellow footwear panelists share their views on the present and future of footwear sourcing: Will ongoing changes in China's economy, worker demands, currency manipulation and domestic demand impact how and where footwear brands and retailers source product? Will China continue to dominate the market? Will we see a return to the sourcing of footwear in other regions such as Italy, Brazil, Africa and others?|
