A remedy to conventional kicks.
Think we’ll wear Stan Smith’s in the future? What about Air Maxes or Jordans? Considering we’ve been wearing the former for 60 years, the later ones for over 30, the answer is: probably!
But should we? Of course, these retro sneakers are cool. Lace up some just-dropped limited editions, and you’re kicking. Some OGs, and you’re straight fire. However, while it stings to say, when it comes to our style evolution, they’re not necessarily exciting or imaginative.
Luckily, on IG there are lots of young creatives cranking out more-than-next-level footwear, like Pet Liger. As a motion graphics artist, he approaches product design a bit differently, creating kicks with a sci-fi style and a mercurial feel. Some even look glass-like. But, as outlandish as his proposals are, they look wearable. Comfortable even. If realized, these are certainly the shoes to walk us into new futures.
