The Xavier Award 


Covid-19 means that the conference in 2021 is online and so the

Xavier Award is postponed for a year, returning in 2022.

The Xavier Award was founded in 2018, by delegates of the Independent Shoemakers’ Conference to commemorate orthopaedic shoemaker David Xavier – stalwart of the footwear trade, orthopaedic footwear specialist and a conference regular who generously shared his extensive skills and knowledge.

Founded in Memory of David Xavier
