I'm 27 and I have no plans on trying to seriously design shoes. I just needed a creative outlet and wanted to try something I had never done before. I was orginally only going to upload a basic concept and try to get some of the more experienced designers to bring some life into it, but then I decided to give it a try myself to see what happens. However, if anyone who is nice with Photoshop and thinks this concept is worth bringing to life, please feel free. 

Since this was design entirely with MS Paint, I didn't focus on intricate details like Flywire lines, shadowing, etc. This design focuses mainly on artistic design elements. The only "intentionally unoriginal" design elements are the "gemstone" on the top of the tongue (Melo 5.5), VisiZoom Air low-profile bag, the icey outsoles, and the Circle (Flightposite 2, AJ 2010).In the end, I decided to go with a Melo shoe because he is my favorite player and frankly, his line could use all the help it can get. Comments welcome.

Still not satisfied (and somewhat bored. Note the very random "bubble gum" pulltab):

Notes:

-Logo on the side is "CA" for obvious reasons
-The grey areas represent reflective material
-Soles and pulltab are suppose to be translucent rubber
-Upper texture/materials are open to interpretation.
-This is the only angle I would attempt (I MIGHT try to do the medial side design, but I highly doubt it.)
-This crap is difficult and I respect those who are advanced in it
- Props to my assitant, Mary Jane, for insperation and guidance through this project.
