Established in 2002, Aide Bao specializes in men's footwear made of genuine leather, with 83 percent of output for export. Casual designs, which make up two-thirds of production, registered US$3.5 million in exports last year.

OEM orders account for 80 percent of production, with ODM work taking up the rest. Aide Bao's main markets are Russia, the Middle East, the United States and Japan. Russia's Carnaby absorbs 60 percent of export volume. Steve Madden of the United States is another major customer.

Based in Foshan city, Guangdong province, Aide Bao targets the midrange and high-end markets. Its headquarters and production facility are an hour's drive from the provincial capital of Guangzhou, where the company has a showroom for its latest designs.

Aide Bao produces 360,000 pairs of men's casual leather footwear annually. Walking and casual shoes make up half of output, casual boots 35 percent and sandals 15 percent.

Prices of midrange models range from US$11 to US$17 per pair. High-end designs are priced US$30 to US$36. Despite the rising cost of raw materials, the company does not plan to increase product prices for at least the coming six months.

Uppers are generally made from cowhide, but sheepskin and oil leather designs are also produced. Midsoles are made from regenerated leather. TPR and rubber are used for outsoles.

Aide Bao pours about US$250,000 into R&D work each year. The company's 30-member R&D and design team puts the emphasis on staying abreast of the latest style trends in Europe and the United States. The company also develops its own innovative design concepts.

The company releases between 80 and 100 design series for each of the year's two design seasons. Each series consists of about nine different styles. The company regularly provides photographs and samples of its new styles to frequent buyers.

Aide Bao's 12,000sqm main factory has about 800 workers. The plant consists of four workshops, one each for cutting, upper sewing, forming and sole injecting.

The company manufactures its own outsoles. The sole workshop is equipped with microinjection and twocolor disc injection molding machines from Taiwan. To design sole tread patterns, 3D Studio Max software is used. The workshop has a capacity of 200 pairs of injected outsoles per hour.
