Worldwide consumers are facing the impact of economic recession and athletic goods market has also been affected. However, footwear is considered to be less cyclical than apparel when consumer spending is under pressure. Analysts are expecting market stabilization over the next few months but not a quick recovery.

The US is the largest sporting goods market in the world. A key issue facing the industry is rising raw material prices and labour costs in Asia, a major outsourcing destination for footwear and apparel manufacturers.
