Hanig's reputation is their keen eye for recognizing innovative design
and new concepts that meld style, function and comfort.
The Hanig's Design Incubator is a project that is looking to highlight exceptional talent that represents the future of the industry - designers who are footwear craftsman. Submit your original designs for a chance to be one of two winners. If you're not a designer, then visit our Browse & Vote section and tell us what you think about the designs, while voting for your favorite.
The Hanig's Design Incubator will name two prize winners. The Grand Prize winner will be determined by a "Committee" representing brands such as Tsubo, ECCO and Hanig's Footwear. The Grand Prize winning designer will take two trips. The first trip is to Portugal to meet with the management of the popular brand Fly London. Then, return to the United States for a second trip to a major footwear design headquarters, chosen by the Committee, that best complements the style and attributes of the winning shoe design. Airfare and hotel accommodations will be paid by the contest for both trips.
The second winner will be determined by popular vote through the online voting at HanigsDesign.com. This winner will receive $1,000 in cash, $1,000 in Hanig's Footwear merchandise & exposure to industry experts & influencers with major footwear brands.
