Bowling Shoe Designer Contest

The leading and largest operator of bowling entertainment centers in North America, Bowlero Corp., launched a nationwide search for its next Bowling Shoe Designer – The #BeBowled: Shoe Design Challenge. 
Current Bowling Shoes

Bowlero Corp. launched the national contest as an open call to all up and coming shoe designers, creatives and bowling fanatics around the U.S. to reinvent the traditional bowling shoe. Anyone at least 18 years of age can submit their design, and in June 2018, the winner will see their shoe professionally produced and distributed to nearly 100 Bowlero and Bowlmor locations nationwide. Cash and other prizes will be awarded.


Bowlero is known for upgrading the bowling experience at its centers around the U.S., with upscale amenities, trendy food and drinks, live entertainment and more. Celebrity fans of the brand include Lady Gaga, Mariah Carey, Drake, Channing Tatum, the Kardashians and Jenners, to name a few. But what hasn't changed? The shoes - until now!

Bowlero Corporation (formerly Bowlmor AMF), the worldwide leader in bowling entertainment, is excited to announce the launch of its “BeBowled: Shoe Design Challenge,” offering America’s aspiring designers and bowling’s biggest fans a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to redesign the iconic bowling shoe.

Bowling has come a long way over the last century and Bowlero Corp’s portfolio of brands, led by its lead center brand, Bowlero, has completely revolutionized the bowling industry. From upscale amenities to inventive food and beverage offerings and interactive arcades and amusements, Bowlero has upgraded the bowling experience and has seen overwhelming success. What hasn’t changed? The shoes. That is, until now…


The #BeBowled: Shoe Design Challenge will give the country’s aspiring designers the chance to put their creative talents to the test as they redesign an American classic and launch a new shoe for a new era in bowling entertainment.


Here’s h
ow it works! Starting February 26th, contestants can officially enter their design submissions online at www.bowlerocorp.com/designourshoes. Contestants can submit their best designs by April 16th when the submission window officially closes. In late April, five finalists will be announced and in late June they will be flown to New York City to see their designs live during an epic fashion show set on the lanes at Bowlmor’s Times Square flagship location.

What’s at stake? A cash prize of $2,500 and something way more important: Legacy. The winning designer will see her/his shoe professionally designed, produced, and distributed to more than 75 Bowlero and Bowlmor locations nationwide, rolling out in 2019.

“Bowling is the ultimate American pastime and the shoes that go along with it are iconic, but outdated,” said Colie Edison, Chief Customer Officer for Bowlero Corp.

“This contest will inspire designers to reinvent the bowling shoe just like Bowlero has reinvented the bowling business,” Edison continued. “We can’t wait to see all of the bold new shoe designs!”
