Back in September Fin’s donated a prize to a charity auction to help raise money for the Katie Piper Foundation, a cause close to our hearts. The highest bidder would win the chance to come in and help design a shoe with Fin. We were thrilled to give our support to this wonderful cause, which raised over £100,000 on the night.
5 months on and we finally had the pleasure to meet our winner – Steve Shephard, Shep to his friends. A wonderful afternoon was spent teaching Shep all about the design process behind our shoes and getting to know his own tastes. We couldn’t have asked for a more enthusiastic winner and together we developed a few preliminary designs for ‘The Shep’.
The designs must remain a closely guarded secret for now, but we will say this – ‘The Shep’ looks set to be a fabulous shoe for next year.
Shep will be back in Fin’s HQ for the next part of the design process when we receive the first prototypes from our factory in Portugal. Stay tuned.
