Air Jordan 1 Course

SELECT YOUR COURSE DATE Upgrade to Deluxe package

This 5 day course will teach you how to make a pair of Air Jordan1s from scratch.   You will come to class and begin by designing your colorways with the variety of leathers we offer.  We’ll teach you how to sew the pieces together, add the padding and stitch the sole on with our cup-sole stitcher.  Your instructor will be Matt Greiner of Lab53.   Matt has been customizing sneakers for several years. Check out his work @lab53shoess .  He knows the ins and outs of putting these sneakers together and we’re stocking lasts and leathers to stimulate your creativity.    This is not only a cool thing to do, but if you like doing it and you want to continue developing your skills and work at perfecting making sneakers, our school rents studio time at $10 an hour so students can work independently on their own projects.


With this add-on you’ll have the lasts, the patterns and some tools so you can start building your own AJ1s at home. You can rent studio time at the school to use machines you don’t have and start customizing kicks for yourself and others.  We are currently offering this package to enrolled students only. Once you enroll, we’ll send you the code to purchase the package.
