If you have gone shoe shopping lately, you might have faced some serious sticker shock when you turned on a few pairs to check prices. No, you’re not imagine it-the price of shoes is rising like crazy.

Quartz reported report emphasized that, while the average price of clothing has fallen more expensive last year to 2 percent-including underwear, sweaters, shoes and jewelry only get a US Bureau of Labor Statistics.

According to the report, an average of 2.8 percent Shoes have gone in price. The explanation for the rise is increasing leather prices due to a scarcity of cattle in the USA

And because the United States is actually the world’s largest producer of cattle, just ahead of Brazil, the rising price of American-made leather has, which is a more far reaching impact than just on American shoemaker.

This is not the first time that we said that the price of the shoes is skyrocketing. The New York Times alerted us to this fact in a piece to statements which indicated in 2013 by the rising price of production of footwear in Europe aspirational price of high-end designers like Christian Louboutin to Charlotte Olympia (translation: hot designers can afford to pricing their shoes so high because the women are willing to pay for them).

The difference this time is that the price of the shoes seem in all price categories, are not only the super-high-end climbing.
