When it comes to footwear, samples are one of the essential ingredients for success. That's why at Rival Designs, we make all of our prototypes and samples in-house, in our own sample rooms. There is no back-and-forth with factories for numerous corrections wasting valuable time. We also have our own on site tannery to further speed material development for your samples.
With our state-of-the-art sample room facilities and a full running production line outfitted with equipment imported from Italy, we consistently produce exceptional, market-ready samples that you'll be proud to showcase. Simply hand us your design, and we will create a sample that's worthy of your brand. We pride ourselves on craftsmanship and timely delivery. Once we've set a timetable for your samples, you'll receive them precisely when they're expected—no delays, snags, or excuses.
Our sampling services include:
Personalized teams: We assign a highly skilled, multilingual development team to work exclusively on your brand. Operating from our headquarters in China, our teams work hand-in-hand with yours from start to finish, ensuring continuity of process. At Rival, we value the integrity and security of your designs, taking every precaution to ensure confidentiality.
We focus on every detail to match your design vision on:
*Lasts & Construction

Today's footwear has to not only be trend right in style, but also in material. Rival will work with you to create leathers from some of the best tanneries in China, or source materials from anywhere in the world. We can work from photos or swatches of existing materials to help you develop the precise material you need. We can even develop some of your materials in-house in our own tannery, ensuring a quick turnaround for sampling when you need it most.
Color Development: Send us your PMS color swatches, and we'll create your palette on leather for your approval. Once your colors are approved, we'll work with our neighboring tanneries to develop new materials with colors exclusive to your brand.
