Future of Athletic Footwear workshop with Nike legend Mike Friton

Do you want to create the future of sneakers with one of Nike’s great design legends? SLEM and Hong Kong PolyU are organizing a great workshop from March 24-27 with Mike Friton, the designer behind iconic styles such as the ‘Presto’ and the ‘Nike Woven’. Mike also worked on the new self-lacing Back to the Future shoes.

In this unique short course you will develop a new athletic concept, including a wearable prototype, applying dynamic materials that have functions and possibilities beyond what is trending today. You will also learn quick ways for 2D to 3D prototyping that Mike developed himself.

This workshop is meant for students and professionals, organized as a collaboration between HK PolyU and SLEM, an international innovation and education center for the footwear industry. Currently we have only 5 places left!
