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.

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 24th (Wednesday), 11:59pm.
About how much will the sneakers cost?
Sneakers are expected to be priced between S$70 – S$200 before delivery charges. Find out more on March 3!
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.
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! We are working to fulfill overseas orders soon. The first orders will be open only for Singapore-based customers, but we will inform you when international orders are open as soon as possible.
If you are an international customer looking to get your hands on these Limited Edition sneakers, please drop us an e-mail at [email protected] with your sneaker of interest and location, and we’ll get in touch with you as soon as we can!
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!
