Following the huge success of last year’s event we are looking forward to this year’s. Malcolm Collins, Honorary Treasurer of the Charity and Organiser of the event explained “We have had extraordinarily good quality of entries from young designers and entrepreneurs and I think our “judging” team are going to be hard pushed to make a decision when they meet on the 28th September.”

The fully sponsored Footwear Friends Annual Awards is now in its 11th year and during this time has become an established way of recognising and rewarding new emerging talent.

Our generous sponsors in the various categories are:

The Worshipful Company of Cordwainers

Micro-Pak Ltd.

 The hugely popular Awards Presentation Evening has also become established on the Footwear Industry’s calendar as the place to be, where all elements of the trade, including the media, come to network, meet contacts and friends and support their charity.

This year the event is held at the LICC, St. Peter’s Church, Vere Street, London on the 18th October 2017.

Tickets are available for £ 55.00 each either through  or .
