 The 20 year old will be receiving the Launch of the Year award at the 2016 Footwear News Achievement Awards on Monday 29th November in New York.

She is ‘honoured’ to be winning the award, telling Footwear News: “This year has been a big year and I am honoured as a 20 year old to be next to such powerful people in this creative space that I look up to so much.”

The shoe collection, formerly known as Sole by Daya, was relaunched this autumn offering innovative shoe design. Zendaya herself described the shoe line as ‘luxury’ without the huge price tag.

Talking to Instyle about her collection, she said: “I think that women, and not just women because boys rock heels too, deserve to have something that feels not like a look for less, you know? Something that feels like the look, it doesn’t feel knockoff.”

The award has previously been won by Sarah Jessica Parker, Rachel Zoe and Tabitha Simmons.
