The choice of footwear for this chapter was inspired by two considerations: first, footwear is a basic commodity purchased by both poor and rich; and secondly, it is a capital-light product that is often recommended as being an ideal industry for developing countries. The study is based on Kumasi, the main centre for footwear production in Ghana, possessing over 50 per cent of the formal sector’s footwear production capacity.
