Who are the designers?
The designers are finalists and winners of the TENCEL™ Art of Shoes Design Competition 2020, a nationwide design competition that sought to find rising fashion design talents in Singapore. They each completed a 4-day Digital Footwear Design workshop at TaF.tc, designed their own sneaker mini-collections, and – out of over 160 contestants – rose to the very top.
Want to see how the sneakers look in action? Watch them walk down the runway in our TENCEL™ Art of Shoes Virtual Grand Finale!
When is the pre-order period?
We are expecting to open pre-orders for Singapore-based customers on March 3rd, and we will close pre-ordering on March 31st (Wednesday), 11:59pm.
What is TENCEL™?
TENCEL™ Lyocell Fibers are material made from sustainably-grown and procured tree fibres, manufactured by Lenzing. Lenzing has supplied TENCEL™ Lyocell Fibers as part of the sneaker design process of the TENCEL™ Art of Shoes. All sneakers were designed using TENCEL™ fabrics. Find out more on their Instagram!
How many orders must each sneaker get to be produced?
Each sneaker must have a minimum of 20 orders to be produced.
What sizes are available?
All sneakers are made in sizes EU 36 – 44. Please note that the sneakers run slightly larger than true-to-size, so you may want to order a size down for a closer fit!
Will I be refunded if I place an order for my favourite sneaker design – but it doesn’t hit 20 orders in time?
Good news: you will be fully refunded within a month after you placed your order.
Bad news: you won’t get to own your limited edition TENCEL™ Art of Shoes sneaker. So rally your friends to support your favourite designer(s)!
Do you ship internationally?
Yes! These sneakers are available for international orders, with a shipping flat fee of S$40.
Will you do returns or refunds for the sneakers?
As the TENCEL™ Art of Shoes Collections are limited edition, we will not be doing returns nor refunds (unless the sneaker you pre-ordered does not hit the minimum 20 orders).
How long will it take to receive my sneakers?
The sneakers are expected to be manufactured and produced within 3-4 months after the pre-order period.
The delivery time will depend on the delivery location, but we will endeavour to have each sneaker delivered within 10-14 business days for Singapore-based deliveries and within 1-2 months for international deliveries. However, we may experience delays in shipping due to the pandemic situation. We thank you for your understanding in advance!
Alternatively, you can also pick-up your sneakers at our office (298 Tiong Bahru Road, #14-06 Central Plaza, Singapore 168730) at no delivery cost. We will notify you via e-mail as soon as they are ready for pickup!
