Q. What are the criteria for becoming a Sneaker-lab designer?

A. We’re not just looking for designers - we’re looking for people with something to say. Successful Sneaker-lab collections have been inspired by art, music, nature and social causes. What will your collection say? If you’re not sure whether Sneaker-lab is right for you, our credo might help:

Some of us see what "is" and imagine what could be.
We see white and wonder in color.
We see the same and want to make it different.
We see it right-side-up and turn it upside-down.
We tinker. We alter. We chop, screw, and cut.
Here is where we worship the work in progress.
It's an exercise in imperfection.
An ever-growing experiment.
Welcome to the Lab.
