A 3D exercise about modifying a pair of sneakers without adding or removing any parts.
  • Cut & Paste
    3D Shoe Editing
  • An altered pair of Puma Speeder. Design challenge? To modify the shoes without removing or adding any pieces.="">
  • The original shoes
  • I removed all the nylon fabric parts from the upper, including the tongue
  • The removed parts being reorganized
  • This is the most important result, after hours of trying new configurations I created this new piece to change the profile of the shoe and make it into a hi rise model.
  • The final result
  • The back part of the shoe is not exactly ergonomic but for the purpose of the exercise the tongue worked very well. I wanted to create a dramatic change, a different profile while gaining as much height as possible.
  • The two pieces removed here...
  • Are now here
  • I also reconfigured the lace, the knot is now at the bottom.
  • This little piece was displaced just a few inches towards the back.
  • Mercurial wings
  • I kept the continuity of lines as much as I could, the whole top of the shoe, and its "hole", follow existing style lines in the shoe.
