The European Union Commission said yesterday shipments of Chinese shoes into Europe jumped nearly eightfold from a year ago during the first four months of this year, a finding that supports recent complaints by European shoemakers, the Wall Street Journal reported.

A Chinese official in Brussels contested the data, claiming growth in Chinese shoe shipments to the EU slowed 12% from a year ago in the first four months of the year.
