New Balance Vortex Racer | Horatio Yuxin Han

Always love seeing what designer, Horatio Yuxin Han is up to. From his UNifold concept, to his Origami Knight concept, Horatio’s projects are always incredibly intriguing. During his recent internship with New Balance, Horatio decided to create footwear for the often forgotten sport (in terms of design at-least) of, race-walking –

‘Vortex Racer is project I explored during my internship at New Balance. Though less attention-catch, race walking requires great endurance and unique techniques. The design focuses on creating anatomically correct racing shoes for the sport, which are not available in any market before. After all, every sport needs a pair of awesome shoes.’ – Horatio
