Two of Taiwan's leading sports footwear manufacturer on Tuesday posted markedly different revenue performances for November.

Pou Chen Corp saw its revenue fall just under five per cent to NT$993 million compared to the year ago period, while Feng Tay Enterprises Co Ltd saw its revenue increase by over 14 per cent to reach NT$866m.

However, despite the fall Pou Chen's revenue last month was the second highest this year, with the company raking in NT$9.642 billion between January and November - slightly down from the same period last year.

Meanwhile, Feng Tay's November revenue was its highest in 2001 and has been attributed to a rise in sports shoes orders from its largest original equipment manufacturing client, Nike. Including its overseas factories, Feng Tay produced 2.6 million pairs of sports footwear last month.
