Pensole woke me up to what the footwear industry was all about. It was a long two weeks that gave me tools I couldn’t have picked up in two years.

There is no experience quite like learning about the footwear industry in PENSOLE with D’Wayne Edwards as a mentor and Suzette Henry in the MLab.
- Caludia Maria Lopez, Xceed Sport
To connect with people that shared the same passion and love for footwear design as I did was something that I found very unique and much needed.

Sky is the limit! Have fun! You are going to look back in few years and will miss it!

PENSOLE has made it possible for me to achieve my dream of being a footwear designer and I couldn’t be more thankful.
