Concept Surgeon Top 10 | #2 Mad.Works “A SchemeⓇ”

Rounding up the top 10 is @Mad.Works‘ “A SchemeⓇ” submission, a super creative and unique juxtaposition of styles and materials.

“A SchemeⓇ” is a hybrid design between ACRONYM and Hender Scheme. It is a mix between tradition and innovation using premium vachetta leather and advanced textiles. The skeletal design speaks to the origins of footwear, while acting as an exo-skeleton over advanced materials. The design seamlessly exemplifies Hender Scheme’s premium and traditional craftsmanship alongside ACRONYM’s advanced techninal design and aesthetics.” – @Mad.Works

With everything from 3M reflective taping and branding, Gore-Tex stretch fabric and Polartec Delta fabric with Vachetta leather stitched onto the upper in the shape of a foots skeletale structure, the concept was both simple and intricate at the same time. This project was really the first that made us excited to see how designers might interperate the collaboration between these brands in a totally different and unique manner.
