Creators Month

One of the guiding principles for us at Aglet is to foster and support creative talent. We do this by recognising creators in many aspects of life, especially sneaker design. Over the past 18 months we have featured many emerging creators in our game, and in our social channels.

Returning for the second year, Creators Month 2021 aims to celebrate the notable Creators in the sneaker world and to champion the up-and-coming designers in Aglet's excellent community. Three Creators have been selected to design and launch sneakers in the game - one each week for the first three weeks of November. These drops will paired with other, existing (IRL) sneakers from interesting and original artists each week. More importantly we will create a Creators Month design contest that will allow Aglet players and designers the opportunity to submit designs and win fantastic prizes.

Designer Showcase

Across the month of November 2021 we will be featuring the work of many celebrated creators with curated drops featuring their work.

In addition, we have selected three Aglet players to feature special works they've created for all of us. It's no surprise that @ikoiko, @SliWill and @rcb05 have been selected for the creative works they have contributed in the past.
