"Senior man shoes" quality survey revealed, nearly half of the samples failed
，目前，鞋类市场上有一种网红产品，被称为“老人鞋”或者“健步鞋”。 China Shoes Net, December 09. At present, there is a net red product in the footwear market, which is called "elderly shoes" or "sports shoes." Businesses claim that this is a shoe specifically designed for the elderly, which is more suitable for the foot characteristics of the elderly, which is comfortable and non-slip. It sounds that such shoes should be especially suitable for the elderly, but some elderly people report that the elderly shoes are not comfortable, and sometimes even worse than ordinary shoes. What is going on?
Through investigations in Beijing, Shanghai and other places, it was found that many supermarkets, professional shoe cities and even some regular shopping malls have special counters for selling so-called "elderly shoes". In a store in Beijing, such products are very popular, selling hundreds of pairs on average every day.
Salesperson Supermarket: Comfortable! Many old people wear it. This foot is not good. It has an arch support. These shoes are designed for the elderly and are very comfortable.
Through investigation, it is found that almost all shoe stores regard "comfort" as the biggest selling point of products. Some businesses even claim that if they buy uncomfortable shoes, they can return them.
Supermarket sales staff: You are probably optimistic about it, buy it back after you finish it. If he is not comfortable, or if you feel what it is, it does not matter.
In addition to comfort, safety is another big selling point for elderly shoes.
Supermarket sales staff: Safe! The rubber sole is non-slip, can it be unsafe! Safe. Safety shoes, this is called safety shoes.
Sales personnel generally claim that comfortable fit and non-slip safety are the basic characteristics of elderly shoes, and the root cause of elderly shoes becoming a net red product in recent years. Later, the reporter logged into some e-commerce platforms and searched for "elderly shoes". It was found that the number of elderly shoes sold by these e-commerce platforms ranged from tens of thousands, even more than 800,000, and prices ranged from tens of yuan to thousands of yuan. Wait, all kinds of brands are dazzling.
Compared with ordinary shoes, most businesses claim that the "elderly shoes" they sell are specially designed products based on the characteristics of the elderly's feet. They are not crowded and not tired, and they are more suitable for the elderly. Focus on two key points of comfort and safety.
Many businesses have unanimously declared that old people's shoes are comfortable and safe. Recently, the Yangtze River Delta Consumers' Union, which is composed of consumer protection agencies in Shanghai, Anhui, Jiangsu, and Zhejiang, has also launched a comparative test on the quality of "old people's shoes." However, a clear contrast with the propaganda of the business is that in the testing process, reporters saw that during the test, the shoe soles had excessively long cracks, and the upper and the bottom wall were glued. These general indicators for testing the basic performance of footwear have repeatedly touched the standard red line.
Yang Qing, Consumer Guidance Department, Shanghai Consumer Protection Committee: Of our 80 samples, 20% of the shoes were too soft and 15% of the shoes were too hard.
Of the 80 batches of samples purchased in this comparative test, 54 were collected from online e-commerce platforms, 16 were collected from physical stores, and 10 were purchased from TV shopping.
The so-called "elderly shoes" currently on the market is a new term for footwear that has appeared in recent years. In order to quickly open the market, many businesses cater to the psychological needs of the elderly and strengthen their publicity in terms of comfort, safety and other functional aspects. Let the elderly shoe products develop rapidly. Professionals say that the hardness of the outsole, that is, the hardness of the sole, is closely related to the comfort of the shoe.
Shen Jianjuan, deputy chief engineer of Shanghai Jianzheng Leather Inspection Center: If the hardness of the sole is too large, it means that the sole is extremely hard, and then it is very uncomfortable to wear. During walking, you will feel that in the process of flexion, This bending force will be great and the feet will feel tired. If its hardness value is small, it means that the sole may be relatively soft. If you walk on uneven ground or there are hard objects underneath, you will feel that this will be a bit lame, which will affect a degree of comfort.
With reference to children's shoes standards, nearly half of the "elderly shoes" did not meet the standards
Because elderly shoes are new products, there is no special product standard. At present, most of the production enterprises expressly implement the standard as "tourism shoes" or "casual shoes." In view of the changes in the foot shape of the elderly, the decline in body function, and the situation that children's demand for shoes is closer, in this comparative test, the testing agency adopted the "Children's Leather Shoes" standard formally implemented in 2017, and the outsole hardness of elderly shoes Evaluate.
Gu Rongyi, Shanghai Jianzheng Leather Testing Center: At present, the domestic market does not evaluate the outsole hardness of adult shoes. Only children ’s leather shoes have specified technical requirements for outsole hardness, so we refer to the children ’s leather shoes standard and chose 45- 65 is a more reasonable interval range for testing.
Relevant standards stipulate that whether it is a solid core or a microcellular foam sole, the outsole hardness should be between 45 and 65. However, during the test, there were as many as 38 batches of elderly shoe samples in the 80 batches of samples, which were not within the standard requirements and accounted for 47.5% of the total number of samples.
Gu Jianyi, Shanghai Jianzheng Leather Testing Center: A total of 16 batches of the outsole hardness of the elderly must be less than 45 degrees, and 12 batches have an outsole hardness of greater than 65 degrees.
There are samples of more well-known brands for samples whose outsole hardness is not within the standard requirements.
The outsole hardness comparison test directly reveals the true condition of the functional hoe that many businesses claim is "more comfortable" for elderly shoes.
The inspector introduced that, compared to the icing on the cake, durability is more important for shoes. Therefore, almost all standards regarding footwear have made corresponding technical requirements for the durability of shoes from different angles. Folding resistance is one of the most important indicators.
Tang Yufeng, Shanghai Jianzheng Leather Inspection Center: Usually some of us wear shoes, and he has a broken shoe sole, which is probably because of the folding resistance.
According to the requirements of casual shoes standards, after the finished shoe has undergone 40,000 flexion tests, the opening length of the bottom wall, upper or sole should not be greater than 5.0 mm. However, experiments have shown that this pair of companies expressly implement the "leisure shoes" standard for men's and women's casual shoes. After testing, the length of the left side of the left side of the sole is 10.7 millimeters, more than double the standard.
Tang Yufeng, Shanghai Jianzheng Leather Inspection Center: The folding endurance test is actually a process of flexing the soles of our human body when walking normally. In our comparative experiment, a total of 14 elderly shoes were found not to meet the folding endurance performance, all of which were cracked or the glue opened exceeded the standard requirements.
Among the 14 batches of samples that exhibited cracking or cracking after the anti-folding performance test, the Auguste brand casual women's shoes had the most serious problems. There were 3 openings in the left and right shoes, of which the inner bottom of the left foot was opened for 37.2 The millimeter is 7.5 times the standard limit. For the tested men's single shoes of Yierkang brand, the left and right feet were opened to different degrees. Among them, the inside of the left foot was 9.1 mm, and the inside of the right foot was 5.8 mm, both exceeding the standard 5.0 limit. In this pair of Aokang women's singles shoes, the glue-opening part appears on the sole, and the sole of the right foot opens up to 7.6 mm.
According to professionals, most elderly shoes with high folding resistance are because the manufacturers use raw materials such as soles or glue to reduce production costs. This not only seriously affects the performance of the shoes, but also It also directly reduces the life of the shoe.
Shen Jianjuan, deputy chief engineer of Shanghai Jianzheng Leather Inspection Center: The more serious problem is that the sole will break, so this can't be worn. Secondly, there is a slight point, that is to say, the sole may be new, and small cracks or the joint between the sole and the upper may be opened. If this is the case, then in rainy days or road conditions, the soles and uppers will seep into the shoes.
Abrasion resistance is another important indicator for testing the durability of elderly shoes. The standard stipulates that after putting the shoes on a wear tester for 20 minutes, the maximum length of the wear scar does not exceed 14 mm. However, in the testing agency, this pair of labels is called elderly shoes sold by Fujian Xiamen Dianle Trading Co., Ltd. The actual measured wear scar is 17.5 mm on the left foot and 17.9 mm on the right foot, both of which exceed the standard limit. The inspector introduced that the wear resistance is not up to standard, which not only affects the service life of elderly shoes, but more importantly, it is also very likely to bring security risks to elderly users.
Tang Yufeng of Shanghai Jianzheng Leather Inspection Center: The sole will be worn easily after being worn. Well, in the process of wearing, the elderly can easily slip.
During the test, there were 14 batches of samples whose abrasion resistance did not meet the requirements of the company's stated standards, including many best-selling brands, such as Beijing Yisheng Jianbu, Shanghai Baibujian and Jianfukang; and Fujian's Qianda, Buduobang, Kanghuang, Yushu brand and other elderly shoes.
Market demand is high but there is no professional standard
In recent years, the number of elderly people in China has shown a rapid growth trend. According to data released by the National Bureau of Statistics, as of the end of 2018, China's population aged 60 years and over reached 249 million, accounting for 17.9% of the total population. A survey organized by the Shanghai Municipal Consumer Protection Commission shows that the large size of the elderly population provides a huge market space for elderly shoe products. The number of companies producing and selling elderly shoes has also increased from more than 1,700 in 2014 to more than 3,500 in 2018. Family.
Yang Qing, Consumer Guidance Department, Shanghai Consumer Protection Commission: The survey results show that nearly half of consumers have stated that he has bought old shoes, and many of them have even bought more than two pairs of old shoes, and Another third or so of consumers will buy it in the future, or buy elderly shoes for their families.
According to statistics from the Shanghai Consumer Protection Commission, if the price is 150 yuan per pair of shoes, and each elderly person buys a pair of shoes, China's elderly shoe market capacity in 2018 has reached 6.68 billion yuan. The rapid growth of consumer groups, the continuous increase of production enterprises, and the formation of subdivided industries are taking shape, but the problem has also arisen: that is, although the product proclaimed as "senior shoes" is booming, in fact, there is no such thing as elderly shoes Any standard. The reporter found an interesting phenomenon in the survey: Although the implementation standard of most elderly shoe products is "tourism shoes" or "casual shoes", almost all salespeople emphasize the concept of "senior shoes" when selling products, and Intentionally or unintentionally downplays its relationship with travel or leisure shoes.
Salesperson Zheng Ping: Travel shoes are generally the sports shoes we wear. They all say that the front is thinner! Our shoes are widened and heightened because after the elderly reach their age, their feet are not aggrieved inside. So his front toes can move back and forth. The elderly also said that there were those who had corns. He didn't mean to be afraid of grinding! Afraid to come across, it widened in front of it, and it couldn't touch the feet, so it felt comfortable.
Of the 80 batches of samples in this comparative test, 47 batches implemented the "tourism shoes" standard, 6 batches implemented the "casual shoes" standard, and 27 batches were either not marked for implementation standards or randomly labelled. For example, Jingchen brand seniors' shoes are marked with QB / T2673-2013, which is actually the standard of "Shoe Product Identification" in China's light industry, not the standard of footwear products. And this pair of shoes that claim to be safer and more comfortable is marked with an implementation standard of GB / T15107-2015, but the reporter found that there is no such standard in footwear products.
Tao Ailian, Secretary General of the Shanghai Consumer Protection Commission: The old shoes we pumped this time have become a segmented industry among footwear and have become a new concept of consumption in the past two years. From our comparative experimental investigation, Look, among all the products that claim to be elderly shoes, the applicable standards are very inconsistent. For example, some use tourist shoes and some use casual shoes, and some use the general technology of footwear. Standard. Then the confusion of this standard brings the quality of this product, and the quality is very different.
There is no standard so-called "elderly shoes", and the quality of the products varies naturally. Through investigation, it was learned that, in order to solve this problem, while the Yangtze River Delta Consumer Protection Committee Alliance conducted a comparative test, it commissioned relevant professional institutions to study and formulate the nation's first group standard for "Old People's Shoes."
Tao Ailian, Secretary General of the Shanghai Consumer Protection Commission: The establishment of the group standards is to hope to lead the industry to a more standardized and healthy development, to truly provide consumers with such products that meet the needs and quality of older consumers, and prevent the market from The appearance of some such goods without distinction between good and bad (Qi).
The newly released group standard for "Old Man's Shoes" has the biggest difference in technical indicators. It adopts the general performance indicators such as folding resistance and wear resistance that are commonly used in "Travel Shoes" and "Casual Shoes". Combined with the actual wearing needs of the elderly, the corresponding functional indicators have been added to make the old shoes worthy of the name and become shoes suitable for the elderly in the true sense. According to the reporter's understanding, since the standard for the elderly shoes was released, more than 50 enterprises have committed to implement this standard.
Entering the elderly society, the aging has promoted the elderly shoes has become an industry, it is a good thing to have shoes specifically to meet the needs of the elderly, but the current status of the industry is clearly not satisfactory, the introduction of special elderly shoes for the elderly The shoe group standard has been agreed by all circles. I wish the elderly can wear more comfortable shoes for the elderly as soon as possible.
