The Shoe Surgeon has teamed up with adidas for his next sneaker customisation class in Los Angeles.

The Stan Smith DECON/RECON course is a five day intensive where students will learn the tricks of the trade and leave with a wearable pair of Stan Smiths. With each day progression through the stages of construction including deconstruction, fabric selection pattern cutting, sewing and hand stitching the finishing touches. Over the five days students will be treated to surprise guest speakers and insider insights into the footwear market.

The beginners class comes at $3000 USD with materials, tools, t-shirt and the base shoe included. Term-time runs between June 1-5 and takes place at the TSS’ studios in downtown LA.
