Department removal from shoes listing experience

In order to simplify listing experience and facilitate more consistent customer experience, we will remove department_name from listing experience such as custom templates, category-specific inventory file templates, and 1 by 1 product update for Shoes products.

This change will be made any time after November 15, 2021. After this time, department_name will be removed from listing experience, but the department attribute will remain in Amazon’s catalogue. Amazon will automatically derive department_name values from footwear_age_group and target_gender as below.
