Research and analysis highlights
A big rise in footwear shoppers this year is driven by men. The sector recorded its second highest share of shoppers in the 10 years of this research and of the 3m extra shoppers recorded this year 2.5m are male. This is likely to be a key factor in the increase in sports specialists' visitors as men dominate their shopper profiles.
Conversion rates in footwear are consistently higher than in any other sector indicating that footwear shoppers are dedicated to one store, borne out by the low number of other stores used. Partly this may be due to closures leaving fewer places on the high street at which to shop for footwear.
Loyalty rates have improved. Loyalty scores have made significant improvements across all the retailers profiled, with the exception of Marks & Spencer which lost 5.6 points and dropped from being first on loyalty previously to ninth this time.
