Shoes used in daily life and for purposes must be comfortable, practical, durable and free of harmful chemicals.

There are various types of shoes made of leather, rubber, synthetic leather, plastics and other materials for men, women and children of all age groups.

A mass of strict legislations governs the manufacturing, import and retail of shoes in the world’s developed nations in order to protect consumers and the environment.

The most important and compulsory legal requirement for shoe manufacturers, exporters and retailers are to ensure that the shoe product complies with the required extensive legislation on chemicals, safety and quality. The product must fulfil and comply with the requirements of the product.

The general product safety regulation states that all shoe products in the market must be safe to use.

Even if no particular legal requirements have been set for the product, the product safety directive is still applicable.

There are restrictions on the usage of a number of chemicals in the manufacturing of shoes, because of their hazardous effects on health and the environment.

Such as restriction of azo dyes used in dyed leather shoes, organostannic compounds in PVC in the shoe product, metal parts in zippers and buttons should not release high nickel amount.

All shoes must have labels on them giving information about materials used describing three main parts- upper, lining & socks and outer sole along with ‘made in’ label.

Shoe manufacturers, retailers and suppliers are responsible to ensure that their products cover the requirements of departments and health authorities in countries where they wish to sell them.

These laws and legislation require third-party testing of shoes to make sure that the products fulfil all the standards and requirements.
