The Future Sole experience gave me a more in-depth view on the shoe-designing industry. I was blown away by the different ways that each designer would set up their workspace and how many shoes were just floating around in each building. The best part to me was working with my mentor, Mark Miner. He was a really cool guy and gave me great feedback that lead me to where I wanted to be.

It was also really interesting to talk to all the other kids because they were heavily dedicated to shoes when I plan on studying a different field of design and could¬†barely name the shoes I had on. The whole Future Sole experience gave me a new perspective of a specific field of design I didn’t yet know and it was great.
