I chose to do this assignment for one of my five this week because I love shoes. I have over 20 pairs of shoes ranging from $60-$200. They are a variety of running shoes, dress shoes, basketball shoes, and boots. Some people from high school used to call me a sneaker head because I liked shoes so much, so when I saw that I could design a shoe for and actual assignment for class, I couldn’t pass it up.
Since the 4th of July was this week, I thought it would be a good idea to make shoes for the USA basketball team or a 4th of July basketball shoe. I started off with a shoe that was almost all white and was able to create a shoe that had parts that resemble the American flag. The shoe only has our nation’s colors in it, red white and blue. I made the tongue white and the laces and strap red to represent the stripes on the flag. I also made the sole of the shoe blue with white speckles to represent the stars. I was also able to add the letters USA inside of the tongue (can’t see from this angle).
