Gabor Shoes reports a 2.4 percent increase to €210.5 million for the first half of 2015, including the wholesale-equivalent sales of its licensees, but the company expects a more difficult second half of the year because of lower orders of long boots and a weak business in Russia. In the first half, the Gabor brand raised its sales by 6 percent to €183.5 million, but those of the licensed Camel Active line of shoes were off to €21 million from €25 million in the year-ago period. In terms of volume, the company delivered 5.5 million pairs during the six-month period, slightly more than a year ago, including 4.9 million pairs of Gabor branded shoes, but the volume will go down in the second half. The German market represented 54 percent of the turnover in the first half.
