I’m always generally a fan of what adidas and Porsche Design come up with in their collaborations. This time adidas and Porsche Design Sport have come together to release their own version of the Ultraboost.
Designer Robert Quach has showcased some of his initial concept sketches for the project, as well as an insight into the key focus of the shoe;
Key focus: Craftmanship/Leather/Enhance stability
The design direction was to fuse tradition and modernity
-Prime knit sock
-Leather Heel counter and Ghilly
-Leather cage with spyder web graphic which represents the extension of the bottom is wrapping the foot.
It visually creates an unified, one piece product instead of the Tooling/Upper
Below you can see the initial sketches, as well as some beutifully curated imagery of the final product.
Design Direction: Jacques Chassaing
