Best Foot Forward - Design a Pair of Espadrilles

Contest Closed!

This contest is now closed.

You can still view all entries and share the ones you like!

    Calling all pattern designers, illustrators, fine artists, and creatives from all walks of life. Whatever your artistic practice: we want to see your most unique artworks and designs cover our classic canvas shoes.

    Step up to the challenge of designing beautiful summer footwear in our latest design competition. Summer is about to kick off and we’re getting ready by inspiring artists and designers with our fully customisable espadrilles.

    Think about how you can make use of each section of fabric and fit your design to the shape of the product. You can design each shoe (left and right) individually so make the most of this creative control. Add an insole to strengthen the personality of your product.

    We want to see how you transform your artworks into a beautiful product. We can’t wait to see the huge range of summer motifs, tropical trends, and vacation visuals.
