N9020 D Gumsole - The outsole has a few points of inspiration. Mainly the quote "Keep Moving Forward" by Walt Disney. For Running I wanted to use Walt's sagacious quote in my concept. So I had the Diadora logos moving in a forward motion guiding its user to their future/finish line/destination. Surrounding this detail are "rail road tracks" which are a symbolic means of guidance to navigate the user of the product.
