← ISPA Link, Nike
ISPA (Improvise, Scavenge, Protect, Adapt) Link is designed to be taken apart. “Our hope is that these ideas and aesthetics become normalized, accelerating our ability to imagine how shoes will continue to evolve in the future,” says Darryl Matthews, vice president of catalyst footwear product design at Nike.
→ Cardi B Club C V2, Reebok
The Club C V2 is one of the most lasting products of Cardi B’s four-year partnership with Reebok. Its dramatic proportions and oversized outsole lugs reflect Cardi B’s high-energy, exaggerated style, and bold personality.
← Venus Comb, Murex Shell, Botter Paris with Reebok and HP
This concept from BOTTER and Reebok is based on a vintage Reebok Football silhouette infused with Murex seashell patterns. The shoe is manufactured with HP’s Multi Jet Fusion Technology.
→ Halo, EYTYS
EYTYS’s Halo silhouette is actually nothing like the angel’s glowing crown. With references to hiking and basketball footwear, the shoe is characterized by arrow-like arches along the sole and side of the shoe and a distinct square toe.
← Pyro Runner, Axel Arigato
The futuristic Pyro was developed with the help of VR footwear expert Finn Rush Taylor and molded from EVA—a lightweight, bio-based rubber alternative. Its fluid lines, contours, and perforations highlight its organic shape.
→ Tossu, CAMPERLAB
This zero-waste shoe was designed under creative director Achilles Ion Gabriel. Named after the Finnish slang word for “slipper,” the caged-style design can be repurposed as playground floors at the end of its time as a shoe.
