Jamaican-born Industrial Designer Mathieu Vaughan ranks high in the 2018 Pensole World Sneaker Championship. With 64 total entries, Vaughan is currently in the Top 32 after the competition’s 1st elimination round through online voting. A Pensole Academy Alum and currently enrolled at the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD), Vaughan’s design theme is “Abstract Approximation“, and is inspired by the Last (a mechanical form that has the shape similiar to the human foot, and is used by Shoemakers in the manufacture or repair of shoes). The finished product aims to give the wearer great support, comfort, and performance while adapting to the “Moc” style offered by some of the current Sneaker makers.
The competition is currently at the 2nd round of eliminations, and you can place your vote for Mathieu Vaughan here so that he can advance to the top 16. The competition continues elimination in the Top 8, Top 4, and offers previously eliminated entrants a 2nd chance at redemption before the Top 2 elimination and final winner. If Vaughan emerges as the winner, he will receive prizes from Tech company Wacom, have a limited run of his design being sold at select Footlocker locations, and a $20,018 cash prize.
The Pensole World Sneaker Championship was created in 2014 as the first global Sneaker Design Tournament to discover and develop the next great sneaker Designers. The Tournament goes through a single elimination, all or nothing style process in numerous rounds, and receives thousands of designs from all around the world yearly. It is sponsored by Wacom, Vibram, EDCO, and has partnered with Footlocker. Stay up to date with the competition on their Instagram, see more of Vaughan’s work here, and get familiar with the “Ja Got Sole” online community.
