Mexico Footwear Industry

Mexico is the ninth-largest footwear producer in the world. According to the World Footwear 2021 Yearbook (More information HERE), Mexico produced 165 million pairs in 2020. Its industry, highly concentrated around Guanajuato and focused on the domestic market, was seriously affected by the temporary and definitive shutdown of stores across the country due to the pandemic in 2020.
