We go again,
Just saw these, thought they were amazing and deeped the concept and just loved it design application aside this is a real good concept with storytelling in pictures giving off a quality feel. If the oldest recorded history had sneakers they’d wear Jordan’s 😂😂, I’m literally laughing.
But that’s joy, me when I was 8-15 the history buff that I was this would have added to my story of where I am now. – In design, telling great stories; creating exceptional product – my 12 year old self would have loved the socks off of this Jordan, would have inevitably be the Jordan that would be my first.
Why do I say all of this because I’m my mo sneakers no stories I spoke greatly about the lack of stories and how that impacts the sale of sneakers, telling great stories (like songs) induces great ideas in young minds worthy of exploring. Once more the quality of the product almost comes secondary to the story told and association it holds. I’m in love with ancient history and things told before records were kept, have been enamoured with it for decades. Me as a kid who loved the Mummy films and knew much about the terracotta warriors would be immediately taken at 8 and now in my 20’s. Why? Because the weight of the association it holds is heavy and if in any form I can be part of that story I will.
This is a call to great designers and storytellers to work hand in hand on briefs to create product that speak to the imagination of the youth and adults. I right now am digging deep to find an outfit worthy of rocking the Terracotta 13’s all because of the story and nary because of the design.
