Something inspired by the work of the artist Eiko Ishioka.
What can be more organic than the human body?

Things related to muscle tissues.

I'm afraid i can only echo what others have said before me and that is to listen and take on board criticism. The shoes above in my opinion need some work and as conceptual pieces are ok but to progress in the real world you will need to listen and become more grounded.

Good luck

Hello, nordmade, how are you?

Thank you for viewing this difficult exercise to find an alternative image to a successful concept, like the Adizero.

I accept all the criticism, I have no problem with that. And I'm happy with the advice that all users of this community has given me. The main objective of this exercise is to explore, find a starting point to see below, look for something more than a successful line, which the company has taken many years of work. And I want to do in a few days, is a great challenge.

Of course, the designs need more work. Plan, design, execute, make a shoe takes maybe months. And every design I've done, I have taken less than 24 hours. That includes: think I want to do, because it? marketing thinking, sketching, making renders, do advertising. A lot of work in a short time, and combine all that with other things to do, etc .... That means it is a challenge of time and quality. Think fast and make quick decisions. If we look at it that way, we can identify a significant effort on my part. And if you see that I do not have a title or footwear design studies, you may have a different perspective of what I'm doing here. Another important part is that I made the effort, has inspired some good friends shoe designers.



"...The shoes above in my opinion need some work and as conceptual pieces are ok but to progress in the real world you will need to listen and become more grounded."



I do not understand what you mean by a "conceptual design". This design below is called "Foamposite" made ​​by Nike, and many years ago that. There are grounds for thinking that the design "In the Flesh" should not have any problems in their manufacture. Or I'm wrong.

Before designing the outsole of "In the flesh" design, I knew I had a problem to solve with traction. Vertical tissues, maybe these need something like a zig zag, and more depth in the relief. Any tip? I would like to keep the lines as they are, to keep the concept clearer.

Greetings.

There is a concept called "razzle dazzle". In basketball, it was a flashy, distracting maneuver, designed to dazzle, or temporarily (figuratively) blind, the opponent. It does not necessarily score any points, it may cover up other weaknesses in the game.

Designers can use different techniques to razzle dazzle a client. However, if they are not able to back up the expectations with true "game" skills, then it all falls apart, sometimes slowly, sometimes very quickly.

Right now you are experimenting with the PS "razzle dazzle" moves to hide the holes in your abilities. You need to concentrate on the basic skills and take some time and patience to work on those.

I'm not your enemy, I'm not going to take your job. Since I started this stuff shoe designer, I have not applied for any job opportunity. And I do not. Why?
Because I do not know anything about shoes.

Someone has removed opportunities for you?
That person was not me.

I am not a shoe designer. I am a designer with 30+ years of experience. I took my time to offer you a suggestion.

I see your energy and I see that you could apply it in a way that would be more beneficial to you.

Re-read my words and think about them.

Victor, do you want to be a professional designer? Or do you just want to have fun and post some renders? I think some clarity regarding your intent might help guide the conversation.

If you want to become a professional designer, there are plenty of us on these boards who are glad to help with feedback and advice. This is a pretty encouraging community that is happy to have more talent in the field.

If you just want to post renderings, that is fine as well, but you will likely get few comments.

nxakt:

What is your name?

My name is Victor Cantu, and has suggested that I am a fraud. I never introduced myself as a professional designer. If your intention was good, thank you, even I gave thanks to the Troll who walked by. But it is strange that you do not know, to do a sketch, a sketch that reflects only what you want to do, and get on with the process, saving you a lot of time in indecision and fear, is something to value. If you think what I have done in these days, is a cheap thing, quackery, I respect that. But please give me the opportunity to remain an amateur, and sharing the passion for design.
