High Top concepts

Been quite busy sorry for being MIA. Did this quick high top kick rendering on my tablet.  I’m still in the process of pushing the design to the next level.  So here’s my ideation sketches:

Lately, I’ve been watching some documentaries on the trend of sneakers on how it transition from athletic to becoming a fashion statement. This is why I’ve been taking elements from Jason Wu’s fall 2012 line.  I think his clean design would suit well for casual sneakers.  I’ll post the finalize concepts soon going to try to play with textures next!!

Finally got a day to lock down and sketch away!  Here’s another Jason Wu inspired sneaker.  I really love this military style with some slight soft edge of the quilt detail.  I added gold lines to tie the look and a hint of blue/purple.

A fresh pop of red and black slip on running kicks!

The reason I have been fascinated with shoes is that it combines both my love for fashion and design.  One of my all time favorite designer is Jason Wu.  I love his clean line and very sophisticated style.  I was very inspired from his Fall 2012 collection.  I took the form fitting elements from the red dress below.  Maybe she can go running in these slip on shoes?
