  • Insane design!!awesome forms...very aggressive in nature!

    11 years ago

  • Awesome Shoes! Loved the sole...

    11 years ago

  • I feel the outsole/midsole was the most successful part of the shoe. This was one of my last Jordan projects and it was great to leave on a high note! It was a challenge to integrate to classic, very unique designs into one shoe.

    11 years ago

  • This guy never went to production obviously, but I still love this sketch. This was the first project I worked on at Jordan.

    11 years ago

  • Thanks guys. These were big seller, about 300k. I couldn't afford J's as a kid, so I would often draw them... I looked at these projects the same way, would they inspire a 14 yr old kid to draw shoes? Aesthetically, I wanted these to be a bit more approachable, a bit less spaceship like. From a performance standpoint, these are one of the highest scoring shoes from the Nike Sports Research Lab, max air heel, zoom air forefoot, great flex grooves, and bootie construction....

    11 years ago

  • Thanks I like the upper left sketch series. I love exploring details like that.

    11 years ago

  • WOW a Jordan boot?? Coooool!

    11 years ago

  • very nice...cool...

    11 years ago

  • Thanks. This proposal didn't make it past a few prototypes, but I always loved it. This sketch is from early 2006. Super fun drawing, I think I rendered it in about 20 minutes.

    11 years ago

  • Thanks. I loved this shoe. Training shoe meets Basketball shoe. It was light and pretty iconic. I still see some dudes rocking them. It came out in 2006.

    11 years ago

  • Hey Mike. What do use to generate the patterns? You must have a series of brushes or just texture layers? I love these shoe renders. Me gonna have to lay some outs man!!

    11 years ago

  • Joe, do you mean the textures? The triangle is just a repeat pattern in the heal I made in illustrator, as is the perf pattern on the toe. The lining is a scan of a material that I applied with the texturizer tool in Photoshop. The collar lines are just an illustrator pattern that I applied using texturizer in photoshop.

  • You're clearly a master of PS rendering. I know this might be one of your trade secrets, but how on earth did you get a leathery texture on that render? I've been playing about for a while attempting it in PS.

    11 years ago

  • I scanned a bunch of leathers. Once you have some good clean scans you can use the "texturizer" tool in PS.

    11 years ago

  • Beautiful!!! Can I have those? :)

    10 years ago

  • Thank you. They were on the market in 2006 I think...

    10 years ago

  • Yeah , not in the middle east I guess, i think I remember I saw them on some website. Is this a 2 layers of EVA at midsole?

    10 years ago

  • great job impeccable

    10 years ago

  • Thanks, this was a late development concept sketch right before techpack. I ended up transferring to Converse to lead the Portland based studio on the Nike Campus, so the final design was overseen by another designer, and it evolved far away from this sketch, which I still love.

    10 years ago

  • Really nice, heel and tooling make it shine!
