ok hi all, some of you has seen me post a lot of info for you young designers out there. so here is an idea to help all of you out. since some of you dont work for a shoe company and want to get the experiance or work for one but they dont want to show you how they do stuff on development then i got the idea for you. i have seen alot of good designs out here on bball or fashion or running. but no actual samples made up.
dont you wish you can have a real pair of shoes that you designed made in to sample that you can show people and say “hey i did this and it is not a preety drawing” , well here is your chance.
if you wish i will be happy to open those resources to you. you will be able to pick the material and details and i can help you do the pull overs plus mounting on a open sole unit…sorry i can not open a sole unit for you unless you have got a big pocket book, minum amount is lik 2g to open a shoe mold.
what i would do is mount it on a nike like sole or soles of your choseing…all open sole unit and size sample 9 and if you want it in your size they could go up to 13 max but would take longer to do. standerd sample size is size 8 or 9.
i can even put a personalized logo in any format (tpr, hifreq or emb or other styles) on there for you.
i will take you thru the whole process of picking out material and pattern corrections, lasts and tape up and all the way thru sample completetion. you will learn all the process.
each project will cost $250 flat rate…that include shipping cost from asia sample shops and dhl or fed ex or ups shipping. please note i am not makeing anything on this. the price to cover labor and material and shipping cost. i am donating my free weekends to help you guys out. the reason for this is that i am retireing from this shoe world and moveing on to bigger stuff, and i want to gave my expriance to you guys and gave you guys a hands on feel of what goes into real shoe design and development and a taste of what you can do with your designs. i would do this for free but someone has to pay for the samples and material…so if you want it only $250 for the whole package. dont worry about your design being kncked off…these guys are preety good and secure because they do stuff for a lot of the us customers too and they only do samples so no influnce from factories. dont worry if china factory want to knock off stuff they would knock it off from nike direct instead of takeing stuff from newbies.
here is the process . payment is half now and half when done (so you know this is for real) and if you are not happy you can get a full refund. all contact thru email and phone calls and sample thru the mail…i wish i can travel to you but dont have that much time. also not all samples will come out perfect. remenber sampleing process in real world takes a lot of samples and corrections…we are doing this all in one shot.
here are the steps.
1-pick a design you realy want to see come to life
2-send it to me and i will have them do a pattern and then i email back to you and teach you how to read and correct it also i will send you pics of open soles unit you can use for your design and you can choose.
3-pick out material…i will show you how to do a simple spec and material call outs. i will email you material samples for you to pic from and you can email me your personal logo designs.
4-email all back to the shop to make the sample and in a week or so you will have the finished sample shipped to you. they will even take photos of the shoes and send it back to you stage by stage.
simple and easy and a great way to learn hands on with out travelling.
