In this product guide we cover China footwear imports. While China’s footwear industry is facing increasingly stiff competition from Vietnam, and other Southeast Asian countries, it’s still the world’s top footwear exporter. Oulian company has been engaged in China import services for many years, has rich experience in China footwear import and men shoes import from China service as our main service, and has been widely praised by the industry.
The technical specifications that define the quality of shoes and footwear can help customers know about China footwear import. Most Chinese manufacturers, and not only those manufacturing shoes, lack internal quality guidelines – largely as a result of decades operating as OEM suppliers.
Thus, a confirmation of product specifications is critical, even when buying factory designed shoes and footwear. Below follows a list of the product specifications you need to keep track of:
· Upper material (e.g. Suede)
· Pantone colors (all components)
· Lining material (e.g. Cotton fabric)
· Insole material (e.g. PU plastic)
· Outsole material (e.g. TPR plastic)
· Insole thickness (e.g. 5 mm)
· Size (e.g. EU 40 – 44)
While purchasing factory designed items is not requiring you to provide product specifications to the supplier, you still need to obtain a complete specification from your supplier, and clarify to the supplier that you will verify that the final product is manufactured according to these. Otherwise, you may receive a product made of materials and components not matching the product specification.
But there’s more to take into consideration when importing footwear. Today, the packaging is almost as important as the product itself. Below follows a list of shoe box specifications to keep track of:
Print type (e.g. Embossing)
Layout (Design files)
Carton (e.g. Corrugated board, 3 layers)
Surface (e.g. Glossy lamination, Matt lamination, UV coating, hot stamping)
Surface paper (White, 300 gsm)
Inner paper (Black, 230 gsm)
Inner bag (e.g. Poly bag)
