Footwear Friends Annual Awards final



After 20 years creating footwear collections for international brands ranging from Kurt Geiger to Fitflop, Claire Burrows founded Air & Grace hailed as "The Holy Grail of Footwear" by Sasha Wilkins of Liberty London Girl.


What's so speacial? A patent "Tender Loving Air" footbed that feels like walking on clouds hidden inside all Air & Grace shoes.


Pre-launch, Claire won the inaugrual Worth retail foundation search for the UK's best new brands bringing investment from Seedrs and Michael Acton Smith. Just 12 months into trading Air & Grace's first styles were a sell out success thanks to the genuine support of key influencers and end consumers.


The success has continued and following winning the Worshipful Company of Cordwainers Award for Innovation (Footwear Friends Annual Awards 2016), Air & Grace has gone from strength to strength.
