There are so many Footwear Suppliers around today, both retail and wholesale, you never know where to look.
With so many around and all these rumors of child labor practices in some companies, in other countries that supply these suppliers, how does it make the difference where and what you buy?
If quality is the reason for buying a shoe, the name brand is always the better option to go, whether for sportswear, casual or formal wear.
These name brands usually have their factory retailers where you can get that quality you are looking for and at a not so high price and you always know what you are buying, unlike certain retailers that sell you these big name brands at costs that are so low it can only be illegitimate products.
If cheap is what you want then, your day to day retailer with their “throwaway” shoes is your way to go.
Your last option is always to go the direct supplier, your mom and pop stores, that still make handmade shoes to fit and last, although these stores are the hardest to find, and that’s if there are any still left.
