Department removal from shoes listing experience

In order to simplify the listing experience for products under the shoes category, Amazon plans to remove department_name from the listing experience (custom templates, category-specific inventory file templates, 1x1 product update). To derive the department name, Amazon will use two attributes which already exist as mandatory attributes in the listing experience for shoes: footwear_age_group and target_gender.

This change will be made any time after 10/28. After this time, department will be removed from the listing experience, but the department attribute will remain in the Amazon catalogue. Amazon will automatically derive department_name values from footwear_age_group and target_gender which are mandatory attributes, as shown below.
