Leading shoe manufacturer Thuong Dinh Footwear Co has won a $2.5 million order for 700,000 pairs of canvas and sports shoes.

The Hanoi-based firm said the shoes would be delivered to the EU in the first quarter of this year although no further details were provided.

Thuong Dinh was one of Vietnam's top performing shoe producers last year with sales up five per cent year-on-year to $6.8m.
