Xtep Streetball Lateral - My first ever, actual rendering and serious attempt at footwear design. The brief wanted a shoe inspired by hip hop/street culture, so I tried to incorporate some of the four pillars of hip hop (MC, DJ, break, and graffiti). The ankle collar is molded to resemble the scratching motion of vinyl, while lateral support is in the form of an orange sound wave. A midfoot strap adds for some lockdown and style. This was done for the MESH01 Xtep Streetball competition.

Xtep Water Rhythm Lateral - This was for the Xtep Water Rhtyhm competition on MESH01. This was done on February 6, 2012. The brief wanted a lifestyle shoe for women, inspired by water. Yeah, looking back, this is a pretty cluttered design that could be simplified much further.

CounterkickxPEAK Basketball Storyboard - This was for the CounterkicksxPEAK Basketball comp, back on March 9, 2012. The theme was "When the lights are out." It referred to what athletes do to better themselves when it's not game time. I was inspired by the thought of repetition and how that is similar to paper folding, like origami or pleating. I managed to make the Top 10 Finalists. Shout out to Brett Golliff and Trung Tan for taking the time to provide valuable feedback.

Power Force - This was for the Power Force "Design the YOU Shoe" comp back on May 4th, 2012. I tried to do something that would go well with the logo itself, but I probably ended up making something that would put the average person off. On to the next one.

PENSOLEOGRAPHY/adidas Entry: adiZero Manuever - This was my submission for the PERSOLEOGRAPHY Talent Search Comp with adidas on MESH01, back on May 15, 2012. I wanted to do something different from the usual hoops shoe, so I turned in the direction of another sport that I'm huge on: tennis. This is meant to be a balanced shoe between the Feather and Barricade spectrums of their marquee tennis line.

Floyd Mayweather 1 - This was for the "Design for Floyd Mayweather" comp on Talenthouse, May 21, 2012. I was inspired by what gladiators wore back in the day, and I wanted to come up with a more modern update. It needed to be lightweight and secure, but still be stylish. The angled lines of the upper are derived from his movements in the ring. Floyd can quickly change direction, evade his opponents and strike efficiently with his speed.
