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.
