Launch of the new competition 2020

To value " made in France ", training in the footwear jobs, the creativity and the French footwear manufacturers, the French Footwear Federation organizes a contest with the students of BTS (2-year technical degree) of the high-schools in Paris, Romans and Cholet.

The contest consists for the students to design and produce, in partnership with a company, a pair of shoes, on one common theme :  The footwear of tomorrow : new materials, new techniques.


A jury composed of 2 stylists and one blogger meet to chose the 6 candidates that will take part in the competition. 


After each step in the making of their pair of shoes the students will send pictures and a report (sketch, materials, pictures of the making, final prototype) that will be published by the Federation on its site and social media. Interviews of the candidates are also published in stories on Instagram #frenchshoesfederation

The 2 final winners of the competition will be as attractive for the public as for the jury: 


Beginning of June French residents will be given the possibility to vote for the model of their choice on the French Signature Facebook page;  this vote will account for 50% of the final result. At the same period the jury of professionalls will also meet to select their 2 best projects.
