Nike’s new Hypervenom II is designed for attacking players and engineered for agility. And while the finished product is certainly a thing of beauty, these sketches from Nike are what really caught our eye. The sketches offer a unique look into Nike’s design process and how each component of the Hypervenom combine to make such a dynamic boot.
“This is foot-informed design at its finest. All of the linear angles on the boot align with the natural flex of the foot. The Flywire powers a lockdown system that prevents the foot from sliding within the boot. We didn’t design a boot that works for the foot, but rather with the foot.” – Nathan VanHook, Sr. Footwear Design Director
