Kalenji Trail Shoe Concept | Nicolas Francois

A personal project by designer, Nicolas Francois, this Kalenji project combines both 2D renderings with 3D elements pretty seamlessly to create a very polished and smooth, overall look. Not to mention, Nicolas really went in on the detailing. These renders are filled with complex materials and beautiful little details that really add to the finished look of the project.

An overall super clean and very Kalenji-esque, looking design. Carrying the logo through from the sole through to upper really creates a smooth transition (though it can be a real b*tch to have it line up perfectly in development) between the two sections. The chamfered, ‘rock forged’ design detail at the heel of the first concept is a beautiful touch also.
