If you're new to shoe making or looking to expand your education in footwear, we have multiple learning options available.  From our popular 1 on 1 classes to specialized factory work flow training, we can help you simply your operations or help you take your passion into a full time business.





If big shoe brands want consumers to "print" their uppers at home one day, there's still a need for education to finish these uppers into acutal shoes.

Our goal is to, help the industry educate & give consumers the skills they need to make their own sneakers.  By empowering future shoe designers & makers with the proper education to design smarter footwear that uses less resources & energy, that will not only help the environment, but also evolve the footwear industy as a whole.


In the past 25 years of physcial manufacturing in apparel and 13 years in footwear development & manufacturing, we have learned a lot.  After many successes and failures, we are finally ready to share our knowledge with all our students and brands. 

If you turn on any news source, you will always hear about how the United States needs to do more to help domestic manufacturing.  The reality is, without supply chain infrastructure, manufacturing can NOT exist.

That said, we knew if we wanted to help individuals & brands manufacture their sneakers, we wouild have to create an infrastructure that would not only support them, but be affordable as well.

LASCO has set out and accomplished just that.  We have streamlined our supply chain to only chain items that are the same quality, or in most cases, better than the materials used by major sneaker manufacturers.  

From sneaker paterns, lasts, leather, components to even glues,, we have spent years & thousands of hours testing everyting we carry & we use all our products on our own custom sneakers!


If you're looking to create your own custom OEM sneaker or Luxury OEM sneaker, we offer a 5 day class that covers everything you will need to learn to make your own sneaker in our factory setting classroom.  After completing the class, you will have deep insight on how to manufacture your own creations in the comfort of your own studio or micro factory.
