The Subvert 87 is a custom shoe I designed based on the Nike React Element 87. It was a personal project to push my 3D modeling and rendering abilities into new areas with soft goods products. The Subvert 87 was modeled in Blender 3D and rendered in Cinema4D with Redshift.
The shoe itself was inspired by a variety of cyberpunk influences, and the desire to take the React sole and push it into a new futuristic territory. The shoe features a concealed lacing system with rear adjustment, underneath a translucent tongue secured by elastic.
This project was done for fun and in no way is endorsed by or commissioned by Nike.
The following images are work in progress renders from creating the original version of the Nike React Element 87 Undercover collaboration. I modeled this version of the shoe prior to creating the Subvert 87 custom. These images were rendered with Octane Render in Cinema 4D.
