He gets a crash course in the brand’s origins as a rubber company, and is told – for the first time, somehow – that the All Star used to be a basketball shoe. He then voices his discontent that samples are made in size 9 (something even the employee building on the shoe’s last couldn’t explain), and plays with a laser cutter before getting down to business with a sewing machine. Turns out that for someone so practised at the piano, Tyler’s hand coordination is lacking when sewing.
