Nike Pegasus Flying Machines

Earlier this year, Artist/Designer Chris Labrooy shared an insight into these Nike Pegasus Flying Machines, created for a Nike Running campaign.

“Together with the creatives at Nike we set about creating a flying machine for the New Pegasus running shoes. Documented below is a range of ideas and prototypes from a rigorous process where some ideas flew far and others crashed and burned.” – Labrooy

Sneaker and vehicle design have always had alot of similarities. The importance in proportion, silhouettes and fast lines are massivley evident in both. Seeing how concept designer, Chrios Labrooy and Nike decided to take those details and reenvision them into conceptual flying machines is super inspirining to see.

Below you can see some of Chris’ workflow, the final concepts, as well as a few that didn’t quite make the launch pad.
