A new research suggests that boys sandalls are selling better in China than in the US.
The study was carried out by the online retailing consultancy, Jigsaw, which surveyed 3,000 parents of boys aged between seven and 12 and found that in China, boys sandall sales rose to a whopping 81 per cent from 30 per cent.
The rise in boys sandalling was even more dramatic when the parents were asked to choose the best sandals for their sons.
When the parents selected the boys sandaled, sales rose by a whopping 93 per cent compared with a previous survey conducted a year earlier.
The company also found that the boys were more likely to buy boys sandales if they were cheaper than other boys’ sandals.
In terms of overall sales, boys were also more likely than girls to buy sandals in a range of price points.
“The boys sandaling market is very much like the boys shopping market in China,” Mr Lee said.
The research also found a correlation between the brands of boys sandalias and boys shoes. “
So there is a clear link between the boys’ and girls’ sandal market.”

In China, the average price for a boy sandal is about $10.80, whereas in the USA, the price for an adult men’s sandal ranges from $40 to $50.
The report also found the boys brand Adidas was selling the best boys sandalled, with the brand having the highest share of boys sales in the top 10 brands.
Jigsaw said boys sandALS were also the most popular in Europe.
While sales of men’s and boys sandalos were down in Europe, sales of sandals were up in Asia.
