China's footwear industry "black horse" to the world market

Opening words

You know or don't know that they all come to Henan Foxconn Group, Baocheng Group, and the United States and Thailand toys.

You believe or not, they have or will have "Henan made" Reebok, UGG shoes, Nike, Adi's clothes, McDonald's toys and Barbie doll's skirts.

"Going to Henan" is becoming one of the best choices for internationally renowned business people.

They not only fancy Henan's land, labor, resources, and most simple sincerity, but also cast a confidence vote for “Made in Henan”. Although there are ups and downs, the “spirit of Henan” spiraling upward momentum, no one can change.

On behalf of industry and commerce, they are in a relatively low position in the global industrial value chain. They have a meager profit, but they are under the most severe quality pressure. The market's big players determine their judgment on product quality, industrial quality, and economic quality.

Since late March, our reporter has conducted multiple interviews in Zhoukou, Luoyang, and Zhengzhou, hoping to record the growth of Henan's processing trade in a walking manner and describe the “world brand, Henan quality”.

"Nanpi Du" wants to build a quality image of Henan

Zhoukou has been the main producing area for goatskin and yellow cattle since ancient times. Historically, it was also known as Zhangjiakou, Hebei Province, and the two major skins of China's north and south. Goat goatskin is an export-free inspection product, and many Italian branded leather shoes are produced from Zhoukou's leather.

Nowadays, leather processing represented by Henan Shoes City Leather Group and leather processing represented by Xiangcheng Dingji Leather Enterprise Group have great influence in the whole country and provide abundant raw hide resources for the footwear industry.

Zhoukou has the tradition and foundation of shoemaking. In the 90s of the last century, the "Chinese leather shoes king" match tide shoes had been extremely popular. For Zhoukou, the shoe-making industry that has now been transferred is only the processing of raw materials, OEM production, procurement of raw materials, product sales are two. In the early stages of development, the processing trade can quickly “promote” the Zhoukou footwear industry, but in the long run, Zhoukou Shoes Industry must rely on raw materials such as raw hides and labor to improve the industrial chain and create its own brand.

To build its own brand, establish a brand image, the quality of the product has become the key. Therefore, Zhoukou City put forward in its outline of the 12th Five-Year Plan: implementation of the "Quality Xingshi" project, and specifically to build a Henan Province Shoes Quality Supervision and Inspection Center.

Regardless of the world brand or its own brand, Zhoukou, the “dark horse” of the Chinese shoe industry, must show the quality of Henan.
