expertise center for footwear professionals

Footwearology is the only online academy for footwear professionals. We enable you to gain the knowledge that will get you, and the companies you work for, ready to create and embrace a better future.

invest in your people!

Take one for the team!

Since all our courses are for footwear professionals and Covid has increased their need for digital skills and other future-proof knowledge, we have seen a growing number of companies enroll several people to one or more courses of their choice;
from companies like Hewlett Packard that enrolled with 3 people, to companies like Salomon that have enrolled with more than 15!
Just like individual students, companies can also create their own curriculum. We are happy to plan an online call to discuss the best options, course order and time frame for your company.

Our pricing system is very transparent. Below you can see how you can calculate your team price. The discounts are given on the total course price for all team members combined, whether you take one course or multiple courses.

Group 3-5 people: 30% discount
Groups 6-10 people: 40% discount
Group > 10 people: 50% discount

Please email us to book your group discount or "access all areas" badge.

Please note: in order to qualify for the group discounts, all participants must have a personal email address from the same company domain.

Create your own footwear curriculum

At Footwearology you can create your own curriculum and combine courses as you wish. So instead of creating bundles for you, we allow you to select the courses you want and take the time you need to complete them.

If you are not sure what to follow or how much time you would need, just contact us through email or live chat and we are happy to give you personal advice, no strings attached!
We take pride in the fact that more than 50% of our students follow several courses with us. Some start with a beginner course and work their way up to an advanced level and others follow several different subjects at the same time. It all depends on your needs: you determine what courses to follow, in which order and within which time frame.

Here is how it works:
1st course: full price
2nd course: 20% discount
3rd course or more: 30% discount

If you want to follow multiple courses at once, just register online for the first one and then email us which other courses you want to take, so we can send you a personal discount code for those.

You can also follow multiple courses in a row. As soon as you have finished the first one and would like to start the next one, just contact us for your personal discount code.

If you want to follow our courses with multiple people from the same company, then check our group options further below.


I took 3 online courses at Footwearology: "Making: The Future of Footwear", 3D Footwear Design in Rhino and Grasshopper for Footwear. My English is not so good, but you can watch the videos again and again, slow them down and now you also have interactive transcription, so you can read along with the video or translate text in your own language for better understanding.

I think the most valuable thing is the Footwearology community: here you find people from all over the world and they have different backgrounds and knowledge. So when I have a question about footwear, once I post this to the community, not only Footwearology teachers, but also other participants, who have a different background, will answer and offer worthful information to me.

Even if you are already a professional for footwear, you can always gain something from the other professionals. 

I recommend you to join this community and look forward to exchange information with each other!
I followed Professional Sole Design and I really enjoyed the course. I think you are doing a spectacular job in the footwear area.
Congratulations, a platform like yours was needed!
I took almost all courses of Footwearology in order to gather the knowledge I need to build my business in performance footwear that is made to size, using automated design and manufacturing systems. 

For instance, Professional Sole Design gave me the background as to where the industry is coming from, whereas the Grasshopper class is offering me a way to automate everything that is going on. So I can now automate my designs for change, which is very important to be able to fit people's feet.
