Well 2008 was a crazy year, thank you to everyone involved; sponsors, designers, customers and the community.

2009 will be even better, we promise.

To kick off 2009 we have a new sponsored contest we know you’ll like. This one is with Ryz , we could say they are the “laFraise” of the sneaker world.

Here is a brief breakdown of Ryz direct from them:

We provide a level playing field where anyone has an opportunity to shine. Anyone can submit their own sneaker designs, share their creativity, and showcase their personal style. And anyone can be a rock star.

Our shoe designs are created by artists, DJs, poets, students, dreamers, doers and other not-so-ordinary individuals like you. But that doesn’t stop them from achieving design immortality.

Unlike the fashionista elite who dictate the latest style, RYZ gives the power to the people.

We’ll post the design entries online and let our community decide what’s hot and what’s not. The design that receives the most votes wins. Winning shoes are produced and sold to adoring fans from around the world. And along with bragging rights, the designer also gets a share of the profits. (Keep the day job for now.)

Yes, this is a popularity contest. And like all democracies, participation is important - so tell everybody you know to vote early and often.


The Details:

The contest starts Jan 5th and will run for 2 weeks. One (1) winner will be selected to win 1500 Euros, their design on a limited run of 500 tshirts and their design interpreted into a shoe design exclusively through Ryz.

Now we require you to submit your design to the special Ryz category on laFraise, but we also suggest you submit your shoe design to RyzWear , that way it permits you to easily advertise between the 2 platforms.

There is no required theme and no design stipulations.

Sounds fun huh?

So the breakdown:

-contest runs from Jan 5th-19th on laFraise EU

-1 winner will be selected (maybe more ;) to win 1500 Euros

-winning design will printed on 500 limited edition tees and on an exclusive line of sneakers through RyzWear

-no theme.

-open to anyone, anywhere.

Can’t wait to see what you chums come up with, good luck!!
