Best Foot Forward

Sep 1, 2009

SIMON USA GROUP has a staff of shoe designers for manufacture in its own factory in China. The company maintains more than 150 styles, primarily for men, that encompass dress, sandals, work boots and casual styles, and ladies' snow boots. The men's brands are Simone, with an accent on the "e," denoting the dress styles' Italian look, and Xtra, which is the brand name for more casual styles. There is no minimum dollar order, but shoes are sold by the case, which includes 12 pair of the same shoe in the same color, in a full range of popular sizes.

There are shoes of leather with a pig lining, and of synthetic leather. Because they are designed by Simon USA Group, the styles are exclusive to the company's retailer customers. The wholesale price for men's dress shoes ranges from $9 to $12, depending on the style. The suggested retail price is no less than $45 a pair. The wholesale price for men's work boots ranges from $17.50 to $22 a pair. The suggested retail price reaches to $75.

Because the company is constantly bringing in new styles, it also always has closeouts. These generally wholesale for about $5 a pair, and sometimes are available for as little as $3 a pair. The current trends in men's shoes are two tone brown shoes to work with suites. It is a washed brown color, and darker burgundy is also increasingly popular. The wing tip look is back, and more squared toe designs are also in style.
