What is the World Sneaker Championship?

PENSOLE WORLD SNEAKER CHAMPIONSHIP (WSC) was created in 2014 as the first global sneaker design tournament to discover and develop the next great sneaker designers. Now with Color + Materials and Functional Apparel Design as additional categories, our goal is to have a global platform for aspiring designers to showcase their talent and represent their country. The WSC competition is conducted online with public voting to determine who gets to advance each round. There will be cash + Wacom prizes for the top designers. In partnership with PUMA and Foot Locker, a limited quantity of each category’s winning design will be produced and released on a global scale.
