With the exception of Le Marche, each of Italy’s top footwear producing regions registered a rise in export values in 2017 compared to the previous year, according to new figures just published by industry body Assocalzaturifici.

Overall, Italian shoe and shoe component exports brought in export revenues of around €9.5 billion last year, an increase compared to 2016 of 3.4%.

Veneto was the region with the highest share, shipping shoes with a value of €2.6 billion, an increase of 4.3% year on year. Veneto’s share of the overall value of Italy’s footwear exports in 2017 was 27.4% and its most important export markets were France, Germany, Switzerland and the UK.

Second in the regional rankings was Tuscany, with an overall share of 21.4% and, with revenues of just over €2 billion, a year-on-year rise of 4.2%. Top importers of Tuscan shoes were Switzerland, the US, France and the UK.

Next came Lombardy with growth of 4.1% to more than €1.4 billion and a 15.3% share of the total. The US was the top destination for shoes from the region around Milan, followed by France, Switzerland and Hong Kong.

Le Marche’s export revenues were a little behind Lombardy’s at just over €1.4 billion. However, the value of exports from this traditional shoe-producing region fell by 1.5% compared to 2016 and its overall share of the total Italian footwear export cake was 15.1%.

Together these four regions brought in almost 80% of Italy’s total shoe export revenues in 2017.
