Nike LeBron 12

A really, really like these new Nike LeBron 12 basketball shoes. I think that not just the colourways are brilliant but so is the research behind the design. The form isn’t a gimmick or just for style, these trainers were created in the lab.

Nike Foam - Etienne Bougeot

'Everybody has experienced that frustrating moment when you put extra shoes in your bag for a journey or after the gym session.

You find yourself holding them above your travel bag wondering how can I take them without ruining both my clothes and bag?

With that insight I started to think about the issues which led me to bring solutions through a 3 day workshop. Nike foam is one of the answers to avoid those worries’
A great problem and solution from Etienne, the solution is really creative plus his visualisation is fantastic. The first image is a show stopper! Character, skill and beauty all in one.
