I’m kicking off a footwear design project here on Instagram recording each step of the way, being transparent about the process, and hopefully collaborating with some of you along the way! You might or might not have seen my first footwear project called Nike Loam, a mushroom-inspired racing flat that was biodegradable. I still firmly believe that running shoes must push into using more sustainable materials, and that out of the big three (recycling, composting, and longevity), fully compostable footwear is still a great solution that we already have the infrastructure in place for (your backyard or compost bin). So the concept is a compostable training flat, not focused on absolute peak-performance or being able to take on the most miles, but being a sustainable shoe that runners will actually purchase and be okay if it only lasts a season. Going to be looking at how to optimize sub-optimal (in performance) materials, tell a good story, and break the mindset that sustainable shoes don’t have a place in distance running. Let the sketching begin! . . . . . . . . . . #callingallcreators #opensource #designcommunity #designcollaboration #footweardesign #footwear #shoedesign #sneakerdesign #sketch #sketchbook #sketchaday #drawing #ballpoint #bic #sustainabilty #compost #composting #biodegradable #idsketching #designdrawing #conceptkicks

Did you think my tape up was excessive? Swipe right to see why. Proper tape up enables you to remove the design that you drew directly on the last in one continuous piece; making it easier to transfer the proportions right on to pattern paper. And no, you can’t see the design. This one is a secret until it’s finished 🤓 #lastcomesfirst #footweardesign #concept #patternmaking #tapeups #customkicks #sneakerdesign #customshoes #bespokeshoes #handcrafted #sneakeraddict #makersmonday

A drafting project I found going through some college stuff at my parents' crib.... One of the tougher Athletic Footwear Certificate Program classes I took but looking at this now...it's pretty dope. My line work wasn't exactly uniform but that shit is difficult lol We had to look at tires for inspiration...swipe to see my main photo reference for this design 》》 . #sneakerdesign #footweardesign #sneakers #footwear #athleticfootwear #shoes #kicksoftheday #shoedesign #sketch #callingallcreators #nike #adidas

NIKE sneaker concept. Color theme 1,2 or 3? 👇 hit the comment. This design is combination of soft fabrics and transparent sole. Sharp lines split this shoe in half for dynamic look. Insert at the back of shoe is covered with Nike logo print. As always creating those is so much fun and it's perfect to expand creativity. #swooshgang #footweardesign #kicksoncourt #sneakeralert #sneakerlove #sneakerness #conceptkicks #kickz #swoosh #sneakerdesign #newsneakers #hypebeastkicks #bestsneakers #freshkicks #freshsneakers #kickoftheday #complexkicks #sneakerlife #shoeartist #footwearsketch #sneakerlover #lacelessdesign #shoedesign

It’s been a goal of mine for a while to design a shoe. When I heard @garrixonstudio was running a competition to design and release a signature silhouette, I knew I needed to enter. The design, which I’ve titled VRTX (Vertex) combines the 90’s Runner outsole from Vibram with a futuristic upper made from different materials. The silhouette is inspired by the dinosaur, Dilophosaurus which features a predominant head crest. I used the shape of the profile of that crest to begin the design process. From there, I designed the shoe around the ridge lines creating a futuristic upper. The color way is “Fossil.” I have a personal fondness for earth tone colors. And wanted to use them in this shoe. I chose these colors to reflect the inspiration of the design. The colors also have a warm, Spring/Summer feel. Once again, big shoutout to @garrixonstudio for running this great competition and for giving up & coming designers like myself the chance to learn about footwear design and production. #CreateWithGRXN #streetware #streetwaredesign #clothing #fashion #fashiondesign #clothingdesign #shoedesign #clothingdesign #footwaredesign #shoe #sneaker #sneakerhead #shoes #sneakerdesign #complexsneakers #complexkicks #highsnobiety #ubiq

Had a few moments over Memorial Day weekend to tinker with a quirky concept for the #lacelessdesignchallenge by @lacelessdesign . The challenge was to design a refreshing take on slide sandals. This would be constructed and inflated like an inner tube, with cemented-on patches for treads (like repair patches from a raft), and a flocked footbed (similar to blow-up mattresses). Equal parts impractical and fun 🤓!
