This intensive study program lays the groundwork to tackle the following professional careers:
It is fundamental to learn the different kinds of construction: in addition to the widely used board lasted and cemented footwear models, we will also work on Stitch-out and California models. During theory classes, we will also take an in-depth look at the other relevant constructions of the made in Italy heritage, including goodyear, blake, etc.
Plus, for classroom participants at our headquarters in Milan, various hours will be dedicated to hands-on practice in the sample room where models will be cut in various materials (microfibre, fabrics, and leather), prepared, and stitched to create upper prototypes.
A few hours will also be dedicated to the finishing techniques of men’s shoes, the art of processing the leather once the shoe has been constructed to give it a unique and one-of-a-kind look.
