We should sell our shoes in a way that celebrates our authenticity and allows everybody to tailor the perfect look with confidence.
Whether it’s two different sizes, one shoe or simply two different colours, it’s all up to you. So, choose one or create your personal combination.
We want to change this, and this change starts with our sneaker. No matter when, where or who, we always strive to leave a good trace.
Judged by a jury of professional fashion industry experts and awarded with the grand prize of 10.000,- start-up investment.
TRACE has a unique concept, which offers the possibility to purchase the shoes separately. A smart move in a market, where around 1 in 4 people has odd sized feet. In addition to the sustainable aspect, the shoes are also trendy and affordable. Rightful winners of the Meester Koetsier Award.
The TRACE sneaker is a wonderful example of Dutch design with a message that goes beyond just a fashionable sneaker. With the sustainable & entrepreneurial spirit of the founders Carine and Naomi, conscious thought has been given to every detail and every partner that these ladies gather around themselves to make their message known to the world. These are sneakers that invite you to positively influence the global footprint in the fashion industry with every step you take. I'm already walking with power!
For us, as members of the judges during the presentation day at TMO, it was clear that TRACE stood out as a business idea. Seeing a viable solution for a common problem, the presentation and drive to solve it in an eco-friendly way, made it a very promising initiative for us, for which we wanted to make a financial contribution available
If you choose for the Entrepreneurship learning track at TMO with the aim of winning the Meester koetsier prize, then you are already an entrepreneur for me. And it turned out to be so! Carine and Naomi have turned an idea into a unique, sustainable and fashionable product within a short period of time. I was allowed to witness the first prototypes of their sneaker brand TRACE, I hope to be able to admire their first real collection live soon. Respect.
