The Outdoor Active Footwear Market is soaring, accounting for a substantial share of the $67.8 billion sporting goods retail industry in 2023. As a trusted partner to some of the world's leading active outdoor footwear brands, we recognized a unique opportunity to provide invaluable insights on this exciting space.
This study was conducted across 1,378 participants representative of Gen Pop (balanced across age, region, gender within the US). Participants were further qualified to include individuals who had both 1) interest in spending time outside and 2) purchased active footwear within the past 2 years.
