I completed this project in October of 2011. At the time I was looking for a winter boot and had developed an appreciation for crafted leather boots from brands like Danner, Red Wing, Quoddy, and A.P.C., but all of those boots were missing a sport twist that felt right for me.
For this project I designed under two camps, "Force" and "Flight." LeBron and work boots were inspiration for the "Force" camp while Russell Westbrook and chukka boots were inspiration for the "Flight" camp. Four each camp I developed four concepts and colored each concept in six different colorways.
After spending some time reviewing some work in my archives, I decided to add it to the project section of my website. Below are four of the eight concepts I had completed as a part of this exploration.
