Footwear designers come up with creative and practical ideas for shoes and other footwear. The extensive footwear market includes high street fashion shoes, boots and sandals, catwalk and high end couture footwear, sportswear such as football boots and training shoes and specialist and custom footwear. Designers usually specialize in one aspect of the footwear market.



The exact nature of their duties depends on the employer or private clients that they work for. The industry is majorly divided into three segments i.e. designing, manufacturing and marketing. Designers handle the creative part of the job that is designing styles and patterns.



They are hired as technical designers who have formal training in shoe pattern making, cutting, designing and sample preparation or as stylist designers. They have to be aware of the international fashion trends and have the ability to conceptualize a salable product.



The retail sector holds a promising future for the professionals trained in this field. Footwear designers work for fashion houses, footwear brands supplying high street stores, catalog companies and specialist manufacturers of leisure and sportswear.



They can also specialize in hand bags and life style accessories. Visual merchandising has also emerged as a promising career option in the rapidly growing retail industry
