BKS + FIMI 2024 becomes the most important children’s footwear platform in Europe

The international trade fair for the world of children’s footwear, to be held from January 25 to 27 at Feria Valencia, features nearly 20 footwear manufacturing brands, which have found in this event their ideal platform to reach professional audiences around the world.

Valencia, January 12, 2024.- Babykid Spain + FIMI, Spain’s leading international trade fair for the sector becomes the best showcase for children’s footwear in Europe in 2024. Nearly 20 footwear brands will be exhibiting their products at Feria Valencia from January 25 to 27, 2024, and rely on this event as the ideal platform to reach their potential professional customers.

“Footwear has become an essential offering at our fair. The fashion and footwear binomial works, and this is demonstrated by the continuous growth of its offer”, assures Alicia Gimeno, director of Babykid Spain + FIMI.  Gimeno adds that children’s footwear has specific characteristics that make it different from adult footwear, so it is important for exhibitors to showcase their specialized offerings and keep up to date with the latest trends and market needs.

The 19 participating footwear brands will not only be exhibiting their products, but also some of them–Baby Lobitos, Pisamonas, D.D. Step y Ría Menorca–will participate in a unique collective footwear fashion show and will make BKS + FIMI the most important European platform to present this highly specialized product. Pisamonas, Okaa Victoria, Blandy Shoes Original Barefoot, Beppi, Weestep, Igor, Silenole, Chetto, Waterlemon, Dispares, Chicco, Big Toes, Attipas, are just a few examples of the firms participating in this 2024 edition.

Trends, innovation, design. Footwear is a sector that is clearly growing. For example, Baby Lobitos will bring its philosophy and its shoes to BKS + FIMI, a shoe that does not come off, does not squeeze and is very easy to put on. Cuquito, whose internationalization is more than evident, will show a whole range of products: from sneakers to sandals, ballerinas or moccasins

Pisamonas will show its children’s footwear ‘made in Spain’. This company that works with handcrafted natural materials will return one more year to Feria Valencia. So will Victoria, a company born in Spain in 1915. This well-known brand will exhibit its product to present its new collection.

On the other hand, Caminito Shoes, a company with more than 50 years of experience and that works with models for babies, as well as special models for crawling and pre-walkers, will present its baby collection and will show its youth sport line.

In short, the presence of a large number of footwear brands at BKS + FIMI demonstrates the importance of the sector in children’s fashion and is a unique opportunity for buyers to see and choose the novelties of this great showcase. In addition, exhibitors will be able to present their specialized offerings and learn first-hand about the needs of customers.
