Inspiration Board

What up class! Sorry for the lateness. I've been travelling/working alot for the job! But now i'll put a loteffort in this amazing course.


Here is my inspiration board:

First of all, there's two things you need to know about me. I love sneakers and I love to play golf. I've started to play about three years ago and i'm addicted since. I would love to be able to wear my favorite sneakers on the golf course, but most of the time they wouldn't let me. I don't really like the traditionnal golf shoe, and i'm probably not the only one. There's a couple of companies that started to release less traditionnal golf shoes (Nike, Callaway and even Creative Recreation-and they are sick!), but there's still not alot of choice. That's why I thought it would be interesting to create my own hybrid sneaker/golf shoe! Yeahh!


I innitially wanted to create a shoe for Creative Recreation, but i've found out that they already did it!. So i've decided to create the sneaker as if I was approched by Supra. I think the brand has a good range of styles that could be appropriate for the golf course. The challenge will be to keep the brand DNA while mixing it with the DNA of a golf shoe.
I'm having a blast just thinking about it!


LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU GUYS THINK.
I'll post some sketches later tonight.
Word!
