—That footwear 1s moving slowly
is the report to Dun's Review, which
says: The footwear market rules,
quiet and most manufacturers claim
that orders received thus far from
traveling salesmen have been small.
There seems to be a disposition on
the part of the buyers to hold back,
partly because of uncertainty regard
ing styles, but owing mainly to the
general conservatism manifest. Job
bers report business unsatisfactory,
due to the slow movement of spring
lines, and very few supplementary
contracts are coming forward. It is
believed that considerable kid will be
worn in women's high-topped shoes.
Light shades of colored kid are used
for the uppers, with vamp usually a
shade or so darker. High boots. It is
expected, will be worn until real warm
weather prevails, when pumps will
likely be favored. In the latter, white
will probably be chiefly worn, both in
kid and fabrics, Silvef grey and ivory
shades of kid bid fair to receive at
tention. There is little change to
note in men's footwear. The demand
is principally for conservative styles
of black and tan calf, as well as kid.
Cordovan leather continues popular In
men's fine footwear.
