We also represent, educate and provide advice to our members to help them achieve sustainable and profitable growth.
From concept to carrier bag, the BFA is at the center of the UK’s footwear industry. We enable a myriad of businesses and sectors to come together to share, support and learn... which ultimately enhances the UK footwear industry as a whole.
The BFA, to use our shorthand name, is a non-profit trade association. Our dedication to supporting and strengthening UK footwear helps to reinforce its position as a recognised world leader.
