We were thrilled to win this award at the Shooting Industry Awards 2017 last week presented by Time Inc. UK, home of The Field, Shooting Gazette, Shooting Times & Country, Sporting Gun and Shooting UK. We wanted to share what was a fantastic evening with you.
The awards were a huge success for all attendees and we were honoured to be amongst such prestigious and worthy nominees. It was great to hear the industry’s achievements and innovations from the year from hosts Patrick Galbraith, editor of Shooting Times & Country magazine and Matt Clark, editor of Sporting Gun.
Mercure Brandon Hall Hotel in Coventry was the perfect setting for such a wonderful evening. We were treated to a champagne reception before moving through to a delicious three course dinner as we waited in anticipation for what was in store for us in the highly sought after Footwear Product of the year category.
A tricky job for the highly respected judges having to pick the finalists from 63 other brands. It was an honour for Fairfax & Favor to be up against established footwear brand and to be nominated just four years since the brand was founded. The nominees for the ‘New Footwear Product’ included; Le Chameau, Musto and Percussion, brands we hugely admire for their design and innovation.
It was our very popular water resistant leather ‘Imperial Explorer’ boot that stole the show in the end, winning Fairfax & Favor the ‘New Footwear Product’ award. Standing tall and proud amongst our other incredible designs. This collection is available in two lovely colour options; Mahogany and Oak.
We are absolutely delighted to win the New Footwear Product Award and to be announced as one of the 15 winners of the night.
"This award is the the prefect reward for our amazingly dedicated and energetic team who have worked so hard to get us to where we are today" says Marcus Fairfax Fountaine and Felix Favor Parker on winning the award.
