Power Force announces shoe design contest winners

In its first design contest, Power Force Apparel has announced its winners. The contest, “Design the 'You' Shoe,” opened the flood gates for athletic footwear designers to submit their designs for a chance to win up to $25,000 and have their design produced by Power Force and named after the designer.

Power Force Apparel is quickly gaining recognition in the marketplace for its organic message of empowering and inspiring individuals to overcome obstacles and challenges to achieving their personal best.

The winners have been selected from over 7,800 entries from across the United States.

Quintin Lamar Williams from Elko, Ga., 23, knew from an early age that he wanted to be successful. Through both middle and high school, he was the only African-American male in the honors program. A graduate of Savannah College of Art & Design, Quintin was hand-selected by the former JORDAN Brand Design Director, D-Wayne Edwards, to join PENSOLE, a footwear design course in Portland, Ore. Quintin most recently completed a two month footwear journey in Dongguan, China.

“I am very motivated to succeed in life,” Quintin said. “No matter how hard it may seem.”

Michael Matteo from Cincinnati, Oh., 22 won the second place prize of $15,000 and John Muhlenkamp El Dorado Hills, CA, 29 won the third place prize of $10,000. All three of the winners will be flown to New York City in June for the unveiling of their designs.

With a billboard campaign currently ongoing in selected key markets across the United States including Times Square, Power Force CEO, Guy Savage wanted to afford young designers with an opportunity to achieve their dreams, an opportunity many of them may not have had but for this contest.

Savage knows personally what an opportunity like this could mean for someone as he has overcome his own personal struggles and successes and is the embodiment of the Power Force message.

At one time a homeless drifter, Savage made the decision to believe in himself and make the most of his life. It was by applying this inner force that he was able to become a happy husband, father, and head of a multi-million dollar real estate firm.

Savage continued, “We hope that our message alone is what connects with people. Whether you wear the shoes and shirts or not - the message is that 'you are special, and you can believe in yourself.'”

Added Savage, “If Power Force helps to inspire just one person to get up and 'go,' then I feel like we've accomplished something special. That is our mission.”

Power Force LLC was founded in Birmingham, Alabama in 2010. The company has since expanded with the creation of Power Force Apparel, which offers ion-infused athletic shoes and apparel.
