yiwu shoes market

This brand new, spacious marketplace is the new home for about 2,500 stalls of wholesale shoes.

Unlike many other markets in Yiwu, having up to a 70-80% factory direct outlet centers, this market has only about 50% stalls claim their identities as factory outlet centers. The other half is made up of agents and distributors.

This is because Yiwu itself is not that strong at making shoes.

"1/2 people in the world whose shoes are produced in China, and 1/4 people in the world whose shoes are directly, or indirectly bought from Yiwu market."

This is what people say about Made-in-China shoes and Yiwu shoes market.

Shoes in this market are from all over China:

High quality, new style shoes from Guangzhou, Wenzhou, and Dongguan; OK quality, nicely copied shoes from Taizhou and Wenling; cheap and crap shoes from other nearby cities and towns.

The suppliers from Chongqing are strong at ladies shoes. Wenzhou suppliers are famous for leisure shoes, and Quanzhou and Jinjiang suppliers are good at sports shoes.

Most sandals and slippers are from Guangdong and Fujian province.

One interesting thing is that there are also several stalls for Made-in-Vietnam shoes and Made-in-Thailand shoes.

Shoes makers from these countries also begin to take advantage of Yiwu market as a window to introduce their products.

Dozens of top China brands came into this market since its opening last year, but most of the stalls are full of small brands and non-brands. The whole market is still a paradise for "Cheap price, OK quality" stuff.

Variety is beyond your imagination. Women shoes, men shoes, kids shoes, infants shoes. Shoes for ballet dancers, shoes for fire fighters, shoes for rock climbers...

Most of the stalls can OEM according to your requests.

Over 95% of the stalls inside this market do export and about 30% of them ONLY do export.

"Not for local market, not for retail" just as the notice they put on their doors to keep away not-wanted customers.
