Student Stories
  • I had the pleasure of attending Roel van Hoff's custom sneaker course at and it was truly an exceptional experience. Roel was an amazing teacher, who explained everything so well and was a wonderful person to be around. The small class size made the course feel intimate, and I learned so much. I was thrilled with my final design, which was inspired by my own leather bags brand Usaii. Roel helped me turn my inspiration and initial design into a pair of sneakers that felt like works of art. The final product was beautiful and unique, and the experience was unforgettable. Highly recommended.
