our locations


The Footwearists is a nomadic platform. This means we teach all around the world, wherever we are asked to come and wherever it makes most sense. By that we mean that we teach things in locations where they can really be experienced.  


Currently we have four regular locations which you can see in the pictures above:


The Shoe Style Lab in Vigevano, Italy

The prototyping workspace of the Guangzhou Panyu Polytechnic, China

Mike Friton's design studio in Milwaukie (Portland), Oregon, USA

The Fair Design Hub in Rotterdam, The Netherlands


If you do not see courses from all these locations yet, they will follow soon.

Do you have requests for specific courses at specific locations? We love to travel, just let us know and we will see if we can make it work.


Since we travel so much, we are easiest to reach via email: [email protected]
