Learn the ins and outs of sneakers
Today sneakers are at the forefront of pop culture, they are the go-to shoe that everyone wears and knows. Everyone recognises the style and design of the leading global or niche brands, but few know how a sneaker is made, how it is conceived, designed and manufactured technically.
What is behind the style of a sneaker? We know. There is a world of highly specialised technical skills in constant evolution needed to make successful sneakers. There are technical, design and construction rules that make these highly sought-after shoes more innovative and high-performing.

of the course
At the end of the Sneaker pattern making and prototyping course, students will have acquired technical knowledge on the sneaker world and skills on patterns, shapes, materials, components and workmanship, which will allow them to dialogue in a technically sound way with the sneaker industry.
If you are a classroom participant, you will be able to see and try to stitch “samples” of uppers and to create, assisted by the school’s technicians, a sneaker prototype; if you are a remote student, you will be able to deepen your knowledge on the pattern making process by means of dedicated patterns and exercises to be reviewed together with your teacher.

In addition, the focus on sustainable materials will give you the opportunity to learn about the incredible potential of the use and performance of green materials in the main sneaker components.
