We've been blogging, sharing and tweeting all about Awards Season! But our favourite awards ceremony of all has to be The Footwear Industry Awards. It took place last month right here in the UK. Whilst we think all our shoes, boots and brands are winners, here are some of The Footwear Industry's champions:
