Hush Puppies Contest Collaboration
Hush Puppies is holding a national shoe design contest, collaborating on the project with a Kendall Industrial Design class. A division of Wolverine World Wide, the world's leading maker of casual, work, and outdoor footwear, Hush Puppies presented design prototypes to top executives in May. Judges have narrowed down the entries to five finalists, and a winner will be selected by public vote. Design concepts will be on display as part of Runway on Monroe in Rosa Parks Circle, Grand Rapids, MI, on May 15. The winning shoe designer will be awarded $1,000 and free Hush Puppies shoes for a year. The winning design will be produced and sold online at HushPuppies.com in Spring 2011.
