By James Quinn

Below are the three companies in the Footwear industry with the lowest price to earnings (P/E) ratios. P/E is an important valuation tool when comparing companies in the same industry. A higher P/E ratio means that investors are paying more for each unit of net income, so the stock is more expensive compared to one with a lower P/E ratio.

Rocky Brands ranks lowest with a a P/E ratio of 8.77. Deckers Outdoor is next with a a P/E ratio of 11.68. NIKE ranks third lowest with a a P/E ratio of 14.44.

Steven Madden follows with a a P/E ratio of 18.54, and Skechers U.S.A. rounds out the bottom five with a a P/E ratio of 19.47.
