Up and coming designers that are getting a once-in-a-lifetime education from some major industry influencers. Pensole Footwear Design Academy was launched with the intention to fill a hole in the footwear industry by providing students with the ability to learn footwear design from concept to creation. Pensole has teamed up with the Art Center College of Design for a two week intensive class. With design taught by D’Wayne Edwards and material education by Suzette Henri,these students have the opportunity to glean from some serious talent. Class sponsorship by Nike and Adidas doesn’t hurt either! Take a look at the student’s blog for an idea of what these new designers are learning and you may just get a glimpse into the future of footwear design!
