FIT student Samuel Riley was crowned the winner with his shoe design “Illusion Shoe,” inspired by Bowlero’s retro-modern vibe along with the sense of nostalgia bowling evokes for him. Samuel not only won the prize of $2,500 but he will also see his shoe design professionally manufactured and distributed to Bowlero and Bowlmor Lanes locations nationwide in 2019.
