Shoe sales are down this year.
That’s according to a Bloomberg report that estimates the shoes market is down by 7.8 percent compared with 2016.
The slowdown in sales has hurt footwear manufacturers that rely on the U.S. market for nearly a third of their revenue.
Shoe companies have struggled to keep up with demand for new footwear.
The U.K.-based shoe company, Clarks, says it has sold just 0.2 million pairs of shoes in 2017, compared with an expected 9 million sales this year, and is now down to less than 1 million sales.
In April, Clarks sold 1.3 million shoes in a single day, according to the company’s website.
Shoes are also a big part of the reason the shoe industry has experienced such an uneven recovery.
For instance, in 2015, Adidas sold 7.6 million pairs, or about one-third of the market, according the research firm IHS.
The shoe industry also is struggling to keep pace with the rising popularity of men’s and women’s shoes.
The number of women’s shoe sales increased by 4.5 percent in 2017 compared with last year, according data compiled by the shoe company.
The rebound in the shoe market, which is dominated by Japanese brands, is also an effect of the Trump administration’s ban on all travel to the U, which came into effect on March 4.
The ban, which has also affected other Western markets, has led to more people buying shoes in the U., where they are cheaper and more convenient.
