September 25, 2016

Click here to subscribe & listen to the footwear industry’s new podcast – SHOE-IN!Stay in the loop each week as a new show airs featuring hot topics with footwear executives, designers, and fashion icons giving their insights on current trends and sharing their stories.  

SHOE-IN is covering the Ins & Outs of All Things Footwear:  In an age of constant change from how we design and produce footwear to how we market and sell shoes to consumers around the world.  Old business models are being shattered and remade in ways that cannot be explained in 140 characters. That’s why FDRA started this show – to have in-depth conversations about the business of footwear with the people actually designing, making, marketing and selling shoes.

The goal is to pull back the curtain and get industry leaders to open up and give an insider look at the industry and their businesses.  Listeners will hear amazing personal stories, unique approaches to current challenges facing the industry, as well as best practices, trends and tips from experts and executives.

Join hosts Matt Priest and Andy Polk each week for an in-depth and dynamic conversation about the business of footwear, and probably have a laugh while you’re at it!  

The latest episode is a behind the scenes look at shoe trade shows featuring FFANY’s Ron Fromm.  Visit: SHOEINSHOW.COM!
