Crafting prototype shoes by hand,
Quality control at production lines,
Wide design experience (lifestyle sneakers, skate shoes, orienteering shoes, desert boots, winter footwear with spikes, safety footwear, outsoles for hunting and trekking, free run footwear…),

Good eye for what’s next (in footwear)
