This is a concept for the Zoom Kobe 5 i made for my portfolio, I’m still a student and i will welcome feedbacks from you all. The Zoom Kobe 5 will use the IPS like the one used on the last 2 jordans (20, 21) I’m working now on different concept for the IPS for the Zoom Kobe 5.
I didn’t post any sketches because there is too much, but if you want to see them just let me know i will post them if necassary as photograph.
i think the sole is flat,it needs movement in the shank.
the render i think is a little bit pixelate,try to put a real leather texture,or another kinda texture by photoshop.
the background in yellow…you can play with endless possibilities.
and the “nike logo” is not in the correct side.
Great Job!!! I like them a lot! Just a few things I think you could improve.
Right now I can’t see any seperation from the outsole and midsole on the lateral view, design that area more. Maybe make it flow with the rounded shapes on the upper more.
I don’t like that grey pod under the arch on the outsole. I’m assuming that’s an IPS pod, and I think for that area of the foot it would be better to have carbon fiber (like on the lateral view) rather than a flexible tech like IPS.
Other than that I like them alot. They look very realistically rendered except for the ankle area, they do look a bit pixelated there. I like the shade of purple you used surrounding the shape on the lateral side, and overall I think the shoe looks very nice.
Billymenut: You right, the rendering is a little bit pixelate i did it on purpose, but it seems like nobody is feeling that
What do you mean by the Nike logo is not in the correct side?
ak47celtics: Thank you for the reply, you right, i will need to show the separation from the outsole and midsole maybe change the sole in a different color
Actually under the arch(midfoot) is just Carbon fiber.
Here is a close view of the sole.
Here is the new sole, alittle bit different
the logo in the background,look at the right corner.
