New York (PRWEB) July 26, 2008
Footwear Plus and Earnshaw's proudly introduce the latest edition of Little Steps, the only publication dedicated to the children's footwear business. The Spring '09 edition provides the latest trends, news, consumer analysis and retail guidance to an audience of 30,000 children's footwear buyers--the largest such reach of any B2B publication.
Little Steps offers a one-two punch of expertise via the experienced editors of Footwear Plus, the industry's leading B2B footwear fashion magazine for 18 years, and Earnshaw's, the children's apparel and accessories market authority for more than 90 years. The magazines are a division of Symphony Publishing and based in New York.
The spring issue is jam-packed with the latest styles, stretching from dressy to sporty to beach-friendly. The extensive fashion coverage includes the season's hottest apparel trends, providing retailers with head-to-toe buying guidance. In addition, there's coverage on what celebrity tots are wearing, how add-on items bolster overall store sales, and our exclusive grandmas shopping survey, plus much more.
"Little Steps provides head-to-toe fashion coverage of the spring season as well as insightful market analysis of this explosive market," said Greg Dutter, Editorial Director of Footwear Plus. "It's a go-to resource for retailers planning their seasonal buys."
"The latest edition of Little Steps marks our biggest issue to date--sales are up 42 percent. The publication is clearly connecting with both industries," said Caletha Crawford, Associate Publisher of Earnshaw's. "The children's shoe market continues to be a shining star in what is otherwise an overall difficult retail climate."
Little Steps will be delivered with the August issues of Footwear Plus and Earnshaw's, providing exposure at every major U.S. footwear trade show, including FFANY, WSA, Magic, Children's Cub, The Atlanta Shoe Show and Outdoor Retailer.
The next Little Steps issue will focus on the Fall '09 season, and will be distributed along with the February issues of both magazines.
