Second Edition of the European “#Inmyshoes Talent Shoe” Contest: Final Awards Ceremony Shows That Talent Knows No Bounds

In early 2020, over 70 Footwear students from across Europe and their teachers signed up for a challenge: participate in the second edition of the #InMyShoes Talent Shoe contest – organised in the framework of an EU Social Dialogue project promoted by Assocalzaturifici, the European Footwear Confederation (CEC) and IndustriAll Europe Trade Union – with the hopes of seeing their work make it to the finals and win the competition. Despite COVID-19 restrictions, the contestants have come up with innovative and thoughtful ideas that materialised in well-executed projects that perfectly reflect current market trends. On the 23rd of September, the Jury selected five winning teams during a final awards ceremony organized via duplex transmission from MICAM Milano. This year’s contest may be over, but the contestants’ brilliant ideas will carry through as a testament to the talent of this up and coming generation, hopefully inspiring many others to follow in their footsteps and join the footwear sector.
