Congrats to our boy Quintin Williams for winning the Power Force sneaker design competition! Quintin went all out with this one, drawing inspiration from a Humvee airless tire. Check out what he has to say about the design, below.
CK – Can you tell us a little about yourself?
CK – What inspired this design?
QW – The inspiration came from cars! Which was my first passion. So with that said, I looked for new car technologies that could be incorporated in a running shoe. I came across the airless tire concept the Humvee is using. The tire is basically made of plastic and rubber….simple technology. Why can’t this be put into a shoe for shock absorption and comfort?
The CTR (cars, tires, and running) is the design I came up with using that Humvee technology to enter in the Power Force competition. I also I wanted the upper to have a “golf ball” texture on it, which plays back into aerodynamics….all related to car design. I’m really with the outcome of this shoe..I think its my best yet!
CK – Any plans for production?
QW – Get ready because it will be stores for purchase in a couple of months! For more information about my footwear designs please visit my blog: www.qsketches.blogspot.com. Thanks.
