To “make a shoe” may seem impossible to most people, but for D’Wayne Edwards, founder of Pensole Footwear Academy, it’s what he teaches his students every day, and he’s now approached, shoe factory in China, for possible collaboration to make his students’ dreams to “make my shoes” an even greater experience.

While talks are in their early stages, a collaboration seems a very logical fit, according to Winnie Peng (pronounced Puhng) , shoe manufacturing expert and Senior Project Director at (CPSM) who stated:

“D’Wayne Edwards is providing a great service to the future shoe designers who have always dreamed of making a living through their love of shoe design. As a master shoe designer himself at Nike for many years, he offers through Pensole Footwear Academy not only a complete education in how to approach shoe design as a combination of function and aesthetics, but even lessons in how to successfully function in a corporate environment.

“Here at, we have worked with many first-time shoe designers who dream of starting their own shoe brand and have many experiences with designers who could have benefited from the training Pensole Footwear Academy provides it’s students.

“Athletic shoes’ manufacturing especially requires the designer to have a through understanding of the components of the shoe and how they affect performance which can only be learned from a knowledgeable source, such as the Pensole Footwear Academy, in order to be able to execute a credible design and communicate effectively with the shoe manufacturer.

“As one of the leading footwear manufacturers willing to work with new shoe designers of both traditional footwear and athletic shoes and sneakers, we at have developed the skills and take the extra time needed to work with new designers, and try to keep the production order minimums as low as possible to make it possible for them to actually start their own brands, if that’s what they’d like to do.

“We highly endorse the Pensole Footwear Academy and congratulate D’Wayne Edwards on the contribution he’s making to his students’ education and the footwear industry and look forward to working with them in any way we can.”
