Market Restraints:

The formal shoe market is extremely fragmented, with numerous firms operating globally. The players are in intense competition with one another for the best designs, materials, costs, and supply chains. However, the prevalence of the unorganized sector is the main issue impeding their development. Due to their widespread availability, reduced prices, and simplicity of customization, local sellers have significantly hindered the key players' sales. The expansion is being restrained by the availability of knockoff footwear produced from synthetic leather created by regional producers.
