Get to know the 2015 winners of the Footwear Industry Awards
The awards are based on an online nomination and voting process which produces five finalists in each category, and winners are those who attract the highest votes overall
No judging panel is required which means there is no possibility of opinion bias and third party scrutiny ensures total credibility of the process.

During the voting stage, only members of the industry can take part – consumer nominations and votes will not be counted. Only one vote is allowed per category, taking into consideration the IP address.
