The Shoe Surgeon Sneaker Design 101 School

Complex is teaming up with the Shoe Surgeon to give two lucky followers the sneaker experience of a lifetime. One winner will be enrolled in the Surgeon’s Sneaker Design 101 class in either New York City or Los Angeles.

The description for the Sneaker Design class reads: “Learn key terms used in the industry before dissecting a creative design brief. You will go step by step into the design process from inspiration to conceptualization, refinement and final review. Organize your ideas through an inspiration and trend board. Conceptualization – bring your ideas to life through sketching, thumbnail techniques, and rendering. Give and receive constructive feedback from your peers and instructors and use that to refine your initial concept. Present your full idea with your final design review. Gain marketable skills to get your foot in the door into the fashion and design industry.” 

The description for the Sneaker Development class reads: “In this 2 day course, you will be completely immersed in everything you need to know about developing a sneaker. Walk through each step of the process including how to create a product spec, understanding the outsole detail, blueprint corrections, and review.

Students will learn how to source materials needed for mass production, walk through fit trials, and prepare to send their design to production. By the end of this course, students will gain a valuable understanding of the sneaker industry and leave with marketable skills to get your foot in the door of the fashion and design industry.”

Both courses will run from 9am-6pm. Make sure to check out the official contest rules below.
