Wolverine Worldwide and its brands have been honored with five Plus Awards, including Company of the Year, a high-profile distinction conferred annually by retailers nationwide. The awards were announced at an event hosted by the Fashion Footwear Association of New York (FFANY) and the footwear trade publication, Footwear Plus.
 
Footwear Plus launched the Plus Awards for Excellence in Design 15 years ago and each year features awards in a variety of different categories. The Plus Awards are unique because they are voted on by thousands of U.S. retailers, including department stores, outdoor specialty stores and independent retailers.
 
This year, Wolverine Worldwide received top accolades in the following key categories:
Wolverine Worldwide, Company of the Year – Wolverine Worldwide was also named Company of the Year at the 2011 and 2012 Plus awards, making this its third consecutive win. Wolverine Worldwide is the parent Company of 16 dynamic lifestyle brands that market footwear, apparel and accessories in every corner of the world.

The Company also owns and operates over 460 stores and 60 websites globally through its consumer direct operations.
 
Sperry Top-Sider, Brand of the Year – Sperry Top-Sider has been a footwear leader and icon of American style since Paul Sperry invented the world's first boat shoe in 1935.

In addition to the brand's high-performance technical product, Sperry Top-Sider is also the leading casual footwear company in the U.S. for Men's and #2 for Women's, according to recent NPD data; evolving into a global performance and lifestyle choice for those who share the brand's "Passion for the Sea."
