Ok, we're ready to tackle the sneaker storage problem. We create ideas and develop first design goals.
We hunt down the Real McCoy of sneakerboxes who puts a new box in our nest when we need it, say float in with new AJs. Yet, it also should work for the minimalists with three pairs of ‘groovy’ Vans.
2) Style — in any case
We're not Bauhaus' heirs more swag is fine. And timelessness is no real dogma for sneakers anyway. We liberate ourselves in search of exciting forms, perhaps colors, hypnotic patterns, something like that.
Your $2k grail? Okay, spotlight on in the glass cabinet. But what about the Stan Smith with vomit leftovers from your last night's party? It's about the right level of transparency, of showing off vs. cleaning up, and about casualness in general.
4) Living System
Sneaker collections grow and thrive. We are looking for a lively design that can grow with a collection. And we like to watch it grow. Please, don't bore me!
