    Class Overview

    Day 1: Deconstruction

    Rey teaches you about the anatomy of the sneaker & guides you through the shoe deconstruction process. Showing you how to rip & detach each piece, to understand the shoe structure and repurpose the soles for your new shoe.

    You then go in-depth and learn how the sneaker pattern is the blueprint for cutting each piece for all components of the show.

    Day 2: Cutting & Skiving

    Rey guides you through each specific leather & the proper ways to prepare and shape each piece. He teaches you techniques for cutting & skiving with the importance of how this process affects the layers on your new shoe.

    Rey's 6+ years of experience has enabled him to create seamless sewing on all of his work. He guides you through every step & sewing technique that he's used through the years.

    Day 3: Internal Construction

    You'll continue from Day #2 and finalize the sewing pieces necessary.

    Afterwards, Rey gives you a course on the importance of your internal pieces. He explains the wide variety of materials that make up a shoe: from the outer layers, foams & fabrics inside of the shoe. You'll then use those materials and start the process of reconstruction.

    Day 4: Final Reconstruction

    Lasting, detailing & the finishing touches. On this final day, you'll begin the process of attaching & securing your soles.

    Rey will teach you the process of gluing, skiving, heating & stitching your reconstructed 'Uppers' to your soles. He then gives you techniques on polishing the shoe & finalizing your creative touches.
