A total of 5 weeks completely dedicated to the world of sneakers, during which the Arsutoria methodology for technical design and the making of sneaker patterns using both board lasted and Strobel construction, which calls for engineering activities in the classroom and hands-on practice in the sample room, will allow you to learn and master the techniques needed to develop essential sneaker models.
They have become a genuine product category onto themselves, which is destined to remain on the market and continue to dominate it over time. Although in Arsutoria we have fun personalising the sneakers of leading brands or disassembling and remounting them, the aim of this course is different: we want to teach you how to technically develop the patterns and the prototype of a sneaker, starting from an original idea.
This program is particularly beneficial to:
This intensive study program lays the groundwork to tackle the following professional careers:
We will work on top-lasted and strobel constructions, take a look at knitted uppers, and analyse the constructions underlying iconic models like the Stan Smith derby-style, Oxford running, Van’s slip-on style, and Jordan mid-cut style.
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.

Attendable online, without the prototyping activities, via pre-recorded lessons, with weekly reviews with the instructor.
