LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA

NIKE

AIR MAX 90 MOIRE

WE STARTED THE CONCEPT OF 'MAKING BETTER' USING

THE AIR MAX 90 FRANCHISE TO CREATE AN INITIAL CAPSULE.

BORROWING THE DESIGN LANGUAGE OF THE 90'S, WE INFUSED

MODERN DAY RUNNING TECHNOLOGY WITH CLASSIC STYLES.

THIS RESULTED IN A SILHOUETTE WITH HERITAGE THAT PERFORMED

BEYOND THE EXPECTATIONS OF ITS MODERN COUNTERPARTS.

THE AIR MAX 90 MOIRE TOOK DESIGN INSPIRATION AND DNA 

FROM NIKE'S RUNNING ARCHIVE. THE TEAM ORCHESTRATED SOME

OF THE BEST NIKE DESIGN ELEMENTS TO DATE. THIS CONCEPT

STARTED AS AN INNOVATION PROJECT TO CREATE LONGEVITY FOR

NIKE NSW CLASSIC PRODUCTS AND HAS NOW GROWN TO ITS OWN

BUSINESS SEGMENT.

THESE INNOVATIONS HAVE BEEN TRANSLATED ACROSS NIKE'S  

NSW OFFERINGS AND HAVE BEEN ADOPTED THROUGHOUT

THE FOOTWEAR INDUSTRY.

NIKE 

MERCURIAL SUPERFLY V & VI

WE WORKED WITH NIKE'S FOOTBALL TEAM TO CREATE THE 

MERCURIAL V: THE FIFTH GENERATION OF THE MERCURIAL

FOOTBALL BOOT. IT WAS THE FIRST BOOT TO UTILIZE FLYWIRE

TECHNOLOGY - THE ESSENCE OF MINIMAL.

WE THEN WENT ON TO REFINE THE ICON WITH THE MERCURIAL VI:

WORLD CUP SERIES, SUPER FLY II. THE BOOT WAS RE-ENGINEERED ON

EVERY LEVEL. A STRONG VISUAL LANGUAGE WAS CREATED FOR THE 

PRODUCT TO SET IT APART ON THE FIELD FOR THE WORLD CUP.

THE RESULT - AN INSTANT ICON.

AIR MX BOOT

THE LIGHTEST, MOST TECHNICALLY ADVANCED MOTOCROSS BOOT.

IN COLLABORATION WITH RYAN DUNGEY, NIKE DEVELOPMENT TEAM AND NIKE'S INNOVATION KITCHEN, WE CREATED THE WORLD'S LIGHTEST, MOST ADVANCED, ATHLETE-ONLY MOTOCROSS BOOT. 

MOTOCROSS BOOTS ARE TRADITIONALLY DESIGNED FOR DURABILITY; OUR CONCEPT WAS TO BUILD A SPRINT SPIKE FOR SUPERCROSS AND MOTOCROSS. THE RESULT WAS THE AIR MX BOOT, DESIGNED TO MAKE THE ATHLETES LIGHTER AND FASTER.

NIKE SNOWBOARDING

ZOOM FORCE ONE & ADVANCED INNOVATION  

WE SET OUT TO CREATE WORLD CLASS PERFORMANCE SNOWBOARD BOOTS WHILE LEVERAGING THE DNA OF NIKE SB & NSW.

TRADITIONALLY IN THE SNOWBOARD INDUSTRY, BOOTS ARE CREATED NEW EVERY SEASON, AS OPPOSED TO BUILDING ON FRANCHISE MODELS. OUR CONCEPT WAS TO CREATE LIGHT AND COMFORTABLE PERFORMANCE SNOWBOARD BOOTS AND THEN USE THE FRANCHISE MODEL ALONG WITH THE USE OF COLOUR AND MATERIALS TO CREATE SEASONAL OFFERINGS WITHOUT OPENING NEW MOULDS. IN TURN, WE SEASONALLY IMPROVED THE INTERNAL CLOSURES AND FUNCTIONS OF THE BOOTS WITHOUT AFFECTING THE BOOT'S AESTHETIC.

THE RESULT WAS A SERIES OF SNOWBOARD BOOTS THAT RODE AND FELT BETTER WITH THE SAME COMFORT SNEAKERS POSSESS OUT OF THE BOX, USING THE SAME BUSINESS MODEL AS NIKE SB TO LEVERAGE NIKE'S ICONIC DNA. PHOTO : ADVANCED INNOVATION BOOT
