CERO NINE IMPACT
In collaboration with
Objective: design a new upper on the FORT sole based on the shoe last of a CERO NINE Amaze.
For this project I tried to implement the geometric properties of the Fort sole into the upper, providing a sense of unity.
I approached a retro-futuristic design aesthetic, implementing elements of the ‘70s and ‘80s and taking inspiration from wedge shaped concept cars from that era, as well as fighter jets and stealth drones.
Where the CERO NINE Amaze has a more feminine aesthetic, the Impact was designed to come across more masculine.
The shoe was initially released as a collaboration with NINETYFOUR. The colourway was based on the cool grey colour trend of 2020, but taking a darker approach to still fit NINETYFOUR’s aesthetics.
The shown colourway is part of the collaborative capsule with NINETYFOUR.
