Leading children’s  footwear brand pediped are to join Clarks and Rieker as an event sponsor for the 2015 Footwear Industry Awards. “pediped footwear is proud to sponsor the ‘Children’s Footwear Retailer of the Year’ award,”  said pediped owner Rudy Glocker. “pediped believes in the importance of proper shoes for children (and adults too!) and wants to play a role in recognizing and supporting the retailers who focus on this important customer.  It is important to recognize and commend leaders in this category so their success can help and lead others in the industry.  We look forward to the Awards in December.”

Excitement is already building for the 2015 event following the success of last year’s Awards. Laura West of the Society of Shoe Fitters commented: “I hear that Footwear Today have some great plans to make the next Footwear Awards even more enjoyable and The Society of Shoe Fitters are delighted to be involved once again.  It is always interesting to see who the sponsors are, as these Awards are for the ‘real’ footwear industry and companies who get behind this celebratory event are in fact giving their support to our industry as a whole.  It is too easy for people and businesses to sit back and not contribute in any way, but I believe you get back what you put in and what goes around comes around, so ‘thank you sponsors’ from the SSF, as our organisation do appreciate your commitment and look forward to having another fun night with you all.”

The Footwear Industry Awards are an opportunity to promote your brand in a credible and ethical awards ceremony, supported by the three trade associations and key trade media.
