We count with PENSOLE Footwear Design Academy as our partner, the first and most important academy in the field around the world.
It was founded in 2011 by the living legend D'Wayne Edwards, former creative director of Nike and Jordan. Drawing shoes for over 20 years, he has designed more than 500 men’s and women’s styles in several categories, from athletic, dress and casual to outdoor, kids and alternative.
Located in Portland (USA), the academy is an opportunity for design students to learn from the best professionals in the field, in spite of their socioeconomic background. To support their continuity, a percentage of the royalties of the sneakers sold by us will reverse to them.
Every year, the academy organises the PENSOLE World Sneaker Championship, getting in touch with hundreds of innovative drawings and concepts.
