Thought this would be of interest for those of you who have thought about putting your own work into production:

We knew Portland had sophisticated and creative talent. We also knew that Portland lacked a support system that entrepreneurs and small to mid-sized businesses could tap into.
Until now, that is.
You might have a great idea that you manage to get linked to a Cool-Hunter site, but when the orders start pouring in, you’re scrambling to find a manufacturer, and tapping your uncle for start-up cash. We can help. And it doesn’t matter if you’re generating ideas from Portland or Hong Kong. The Center of Excellence is a broad system that spans the globe.
We draw together Portland’s deep creative culture to provide the infrastructure, access and the resource network required to jumpstart your new or existing venture. Emerging businesses in the footwear, active wear, outdoor gear and cycling industries, to name a few, need look no further.

I came across this Russian site.

It has some vintage Adi + Nike along with some other brands

I found it quite interesting. Very basic site but it shows how little footwear has changed in the last 5+ years

I just came accross this execllent site today.

http://www.bartiedesign.com/

I especially like the info about the ARS Sutoria footwear school in Milan, on his blog, I know of several ID-ers or designers with fashion degrees who took the footwear course here, I've heard it's very good.
