The aspiring designers, who want to take up the challenge, will try their hand at designing a new shoe model. The product will have to guarantee “A THIERRY RABOTIN experience”: essential shoes for women of all ages who refuse to sacrifice comfort in the name of fashion.
The aim of the contest is to open the doors of the company to all customers, as well as Italian and world’s future fashion designers.

“The creation of Thierry Rabotin shoes”, explains Karl Schlecht, one of the company’s founders, “requires a strong artisan component that no technical resource could ever replace. Craftsmanship represents a challenge for the experience of the master shoemakers who create them. Only through the preservation and enhancement of the historical heritage of hand-made manufacturing it is possible to integrate the expertise into research and contemporary design. We have always been focused on making very comfortable shoes, cared for in every detail and characterized by a strong creativity. On the occasion of our twentieth anniversary we have decided to open the doors of our company and welcome all the ideas that we will receive, giving the possibility to creative talents from all over the world to design and create the shoe of their dreams “.
