Q4’s Quintin Williams is now a professor at his alma mater Savannah College of Art and Design. SCAD is helping to expand the opportunity for students looking to enter the sneaker design industry. I’ve covered Q and Q4 Sports here on the site:
One of the coolest things to witness is a designer who has been able to operate outside of the system by launching his own brand, also return to teach the next generation of footwear design students.
