The label wants you to redesign the classic Colorado.

Fancy following in the footsteps of Martine Rose, James Long or Alex Mattsson? Of course you do! Now step this way...

If you’re unsure of the link between the three menswear designers – other than their shared participation in London Collections: Men – allow us to help you out. Each has collaborated with pioneers of the sturdy tan lace up, Cat Footwear.

For Rose, the brand provided a starting point for her bright pink patent introduction to womenswear, while Long too, chose a patent coat for his brogue inspired boots. Mattsson’s SS14 boys meanwhile, each donned a black pair of the iconic Colorado boot for his June presentation. 

If you think you can do one better than the big guns, now is your chance.

Fashion Your Future asks you to do just that, fashion a pair of Cat’s Colorado’s for the chance to improve your future, it’s really that simple.

Emerging fashion talent Elise Ngobi, Imtayaz Qassim and Mayada Khammu have already each had a go (check out their designs on Tumblr), while DJ Siobhan Bell has also tried her hand at design with a not so dainty heeled pair.

Winners will be announced in January, gaining financial support and promotion as well as mentoring from the prestigious judging panel of key designers, fashion editors, writers and buyers.

The UK’s top entry will then battle it out in a global competition, the winner of which will get the opportunity to work alongside Cat’s product designers, and see their design go into production.
