Some of you know I have been training with a bespoke shoemaker. I'm now making bespoke trainers at home when the kids are at school. My first were from my own measures - making a last of my foot shape + (running shoe) style. I am working on a few adi silhouettes too. This supe was to test the pattern for a shoe for an SSDB member. Hope you like.

Like? I love... Unbelievable what you can accomplish and I'm 100% sure your quality will be 10 times better than adi.
With God's help I'll conquer this terrible affliction.

Thanks! I think I'm a little passed it for them P! Their designers must have to acquire shoemaking skills somewhere in order to make prototypes and know what will work and what won't. But from what I understand, we don't really teach that in the UK anymore. The shoe design courses have a making module as I understand and the designers sometimes turn to professional shoemakers to help complete their final projects. Faking the funk without factory tech is tricky as fuck.. I'm not sure where this will take but I am determined to make something beautiful eventually, and enjoy the ride.



And feed the kids.

Eventually?
You need to take a step back and lookat what you've actually created these past years.
It really is nothing short of amazing.
I would certainly consider it of a level that should be able to make you a living and render you worthy of collabs, at the very least.

    Posting here, because they wouldn't exist if it wasn't for this place. Mr Sk8 is a great online friend that I hope to meet in 2017 along with some of you UK based boys.

Hope you like fellas. All the best for this year.

Happy New Year all. Been a while!!

As has been said here, and elsewhere, what you do is nothing short of extraordinary.
I'm not privvy to how the industry works but it still surprises me that Adidas have not "consulted" you in any way, shape or form. There is absolutely no way that they are not aware of you and what you have done.
I'm pretty sure that Nike are supportive of people like Stash and Sekure D.
