This website has been designed into two broad areas, namely; information for those who do not know about SAFLIA or the footwear industry and a section for the exclusive use of members, which mainly comprises detailed statistics on Production, Employment, CPI, PPI, Imports and Exports.

In order to access the exclusive Member information it is necessary to register first with the SAFLIA office. (Click here).

Alternatively, non-members are able to purchase any of the 3 SAFLIA Publications (Digest, Footstats and Annual Report) from the SAFLIA Office. If you would like to purchase the Publications (Click here).

SAFLIA has around 50 Members and represents 60% of total employment and the industry as a whole in recent years has undergone a growth transformation recovering to production levels of 50 million units, which is on a par with production levels pre 2002, when imports from China began to flood the market.

Many academics find this an interesting case study where a sunset industry has resurrected itself with very little external support.
