I’m not a fan of how Nike’s Vapormax is shaped. I redesigned them to copy the silhouette and sole form factor of Nike’s earliest running shoes. The way they are now reminds me of baseball cleats I had when I was a kid – they even make the same clacking sound when you walk. Instead of designing minimalist shoes that represent some nebulous future in a vacuum, Nike should reference older shoes that are outselling their new designs 5 to 1.
