Wow. Great work man. This really seems like the perfect design for an Air Jordan. It's simple, inspired, and with advanced and innovative tech. I remember when you showed me this design in it's earlier form, and I really liked it then, but all the tech and everything on this version just blows me away. All in all looks awesome.

Ps I love that lenoardo da vinci drawing with the jumpman morphed in..that's sick...lol.

the hotness!!!

very concise, home slice. the presentation is very clean and it is evident the work you put in resulted in a very thoughtful design. my lone criticism(s) is that aesthetically, the final design does look to have evolved much from the initial sketches? that might very well be a result of editing, but it is something that jumped at me...tangentially though the design seems to be very tech driven, that element of the "unexpectedness" (i recall hearing that somewheres...cannot remember where though) that comes with the flagship jordan shoe, just is missing that umph! imo...i think you holding bak on us TH, ha!

very dope, nonetheless
no ideas original....there is nothing new under the sun...it is never what you do but how it is done

Thanks guys.

Jungle- thanks for taking the time to critique. Agree with you on most of that...that "umph" is a mo fo. Still trying to perfect that.

This project was very non-linear for me in that I was doing some sketching, then some stuff on the computer and sort of jumping all around until it finally spun itself together. There could be some disconnection there to the sketches as a result. Believe it or not, there's a lot of stuff I didn't post because it was just overwhelming...so I cut it down to get the basic idea across.

Super thorough: I love the butterfly views, those are beautiful images on there own. Great work.

I'm not sure about the stealth chopper inspirado though, i seams doubtfull that the brand would go back to stealth for inspiration. I like how you pulled the coffered dome out for inspiration in the heel... might be more in there.... my advice would be to keep to one inspiration story and go deep on that story.

The forefoot of the outsole feels a bit wide, but then I always tend to over sleeken them. I feel like it could have more flow to it...

I don't want this to undercut how great of a project this is, but I want to give you some feedback because I know where you are and where you want to be... good stuff man, keep it rolling.

MD~

Feedback like that is exactly why I have this work posted up here. Thank you. I agree with what you are saying. In terms of the stealth concept, I actually started this before I knew anything about the XX2, but interesetingly enough, a few of the ideas came pretty close.

I understand what Jungle is saying about "umph!", and what Micheal is saying aout the forefoot width. But, aside from that.... Dude! ... Dewd! ... Dood! ...
