This is a shoe concept for Jordan brand. Most of the work went into the airbag design. The upper is minimal so as not to detract from the glowing 80s retro futuristic alien technology sole. It has glowing plasma inside the airbag that sparks and fizzles when you walk.
This is a retro 90s variation of Kanyes cool Nike basketball shoe. The work he did with Nike is some of the best shoes Nike ever made. I like them because they are aware of the past and also make a nod to the future.
This is a Nike running shoe concept. It is inspired by post apocalyptic industrial design from the 80s. It has a self lacing mechanism that is visible on the outside of the shoe. It also has an outsole that flakes away as you wear it.
This is a Balenciaga dad shoe trainer. It is a sarcastic poetic statement about streetwear and the history of athletic footwear in Western culture. This isn’t just a shoe – it is a postmodern wearable sculpture about fashion and art. It is meant to look dirty and used.
This is a limited edition Nike Air Max running shoe crossover with Supreme. It has a giant transparent red air bag that is made of red Flubber and a transparent mesh upper that lets you show off your limited edition Supreme socks. It is amazing how some brands have transcended simply being a logo on apparel to being part of a statement about popular art.
