In November, Brazilian footwear exports grew by 13.8 percent year-over-year to 9.55 million pairs thanks to a 52 percent increase in slipper exports, according to Abicalçados, which represents the local footwear industry.

But in revenues, exports declined by 23.8 percent to $53.4 million during the month partially due to a decline of the Brazilian real against the U.S. dollar.

In the first 11 months of the year, the country sold 84.48 million pairs abroad, down by 19.4 percent year-on-year, for $598.73 million, down by 32.8 percent.
