The most important day of the school year isn’t the one where you get your final report or when you graduate. It’s the first day, when you return and spend the next ten months in a room with the same people. Because the way they remember you from the first day of school is the way they’ll remember you for the rest of the year. Get inspired by the Footshop crew, who, although they’ve already finished their studies, would pass the first day with flying colors.
The holidays aren’t just about Sundays on a Monday, festivals and vacations, but also about part time jobs and side hustles. As we suspect your bank account is full and you’re mentally preparing for the upcoming school year, now’s the right time to take a look at the Footshop crew’s Back to School selection.

What was school like?
For most of the people at Footshop, school is a thing of the past. Of course you’ll find people among us that work part time or are internists and volunteers, but by now school is mostly just a distant memory. Lijana and Martin will tell you about their studying days and how it prepared them for working at Footshop.
“I’m in the last year of getting my master’s degree at VŠE, where my main specialization is information management. An important change for me was my secondary specialization – online marketing, through which I got to where I’m at now. I like IT and its connection to SEO, through which I found out what I enjoy. The biggest benefit for me was being able to go abroad, where I got a lot of experience in web design and web optimalization, which I can use in my job at Footshop.”
“I studied graphical and spatial design in high school in Bratislava, where, apart from learning how to work with graphics programs, I adopted habits I utilise in my work on Instagram. It’s an unspoken rule that studying at an art school is a wild experience. This was quite a change, because in elementary school I was in a mathematics class and I thought I would take more of an intellectual path later on, but that’s just the way it is. If I had to choose, I definitely wouldn’t change anything.”
