From furry slides to light up sneakers, there's a massive variety of shoe styles to sell online. Read on to see our hottest picks for shoe styles to dropship in 2023.
As long as people continue being born with feet, there will continue to be a massive market for shoes. The online shoe sales industry in the United States alone has grown by 10.4% over the past five years to $14 billion. Like other clothing items, shoes are viewed by many as a necessity and a luxury. While the industry is dominated by a lot of big brands, there are many opportunities for small businesses to tap into the shoe market.
That’s because there are so many niches within the shoe industry for you to choose from. To name just a few, there are running shoes, tramping shoes, dress shoes, high heels, canvas sneakers, leather boots. The list goes on! The evolving nature of the fashion industry means you may be able to ride the wave of new trends. Shoes are also typically lightweight, durable, and fit within a shoe box, which makes them perfect products for dropshipping.
The first step to dropshipping shoes is deciding which types of shoes you’re going to sell. It’s a highly-competitive market so it’s important that you focus on a specific niche. You might want to sell women’s formal footwear, or weightlifting shoes, or children’s shoes. The more refined your niche is, the better chance you will have of being successful.
You should also think about what end of the market you want to be in - high-end/expensive, low-end/cheap, or somewhere in between? Once you know what niche you want to focus on and you’ve done your market research, follow these three steps to get your dropshipping journey underway:
