FN's 2013 Power 100

Ranking the footwear industry's biggest players and rising talents.

How do you know power when you see it?

For Footwear News’ editors, who each year methodically assess the industry’s movers and shakers, it is defined by what we call the “in” factor — innovation, intrigue, insight and industry clout.

Right now, the big players are getting bigger as the small rising talents show their large ambition. This year’s ranking reflects that.

Additionally, this year we’ve also rounded out the list with separate breakouts featuring executives, designers, independents and associations making an impact in their own right.
