At the recent Autodesk University 2017 in the exhibit hall there was a great exhibit featuring Portland Oregon based Pensole Footwear Academy. Portland is the epicenter of athletic shoe design with Nike, Adidas, Under Armour, and others having a large presence here in Portland.
Pensole Footwear Academy was started by former Nike designer who was the designer of the popular Air Jordan basketball shoes. Pensole was created as a way to help curate future shoe designers teaching them shoe design, manufacturing, and materials.
There were so many great exhibits at AU2017 this year!
