The UK’s largest shoemaker, Hotter, which are based at Peel Road in Skelmersdale, enjoyed a ‘Cinderella moment’ winning the Glass Slipper trophy for best newcomer at the international FN Platform Exhibition.
They faced stiff competition but managed to beat 156 shoe brands to win the prestigious award at the Las Vegas trade show, which is a global showcase for branded footwear.
Sara Prowse, Hotter Chief Executive commented: “Not only are we delighted to have won such an important award at our first visit to an overseas exhibition, we are also overwhelmed with the response to our new range.
“We established our US website and mail order business five years ago and this is our fastest growing territory. We currently serve our US customers from our dedicated call centre which is situated next to our UK factory and warehouse; shoes are shipped direct to US home addresses.”
