Create-Your-Own-Shoe Contest

Make 'em filthy

Alright, I found this really cool link via Slam Online, and I thought I'd share it and create a thread for a contest of sorts.

Essentially, Adidas has created a thing where you can Create Your Own Shoes with a bunch of customization options. Colors, styles, prints, logos, countries' flags....everything.

So, come up with your sickest pair of kicks. Make them "filthy," as Ben likes to say.

 

Instructions:

  1. Go to Mi Adidas and make the kicks.
  2. Once you're done, save the design (you'll have to make an account, (which takes 20 seconds) and email it to yourself.
  3. Go to your email, click the link, and it will take you to the 3D representation of your shoes it created for you. Share your design here by posting the URL as a comment.

I can haz prizez?

Depending on how many people participate, I might give out a small prize or something for whoever creates the sickest kicks (last time I had a contest I sent Outlaw is Rejector a $5 Starbucks card, so don't expect anything huge).

Judging is a combination of creativity, originality, overall aesthetic appeal, and how the other participants and readers react to your shoe.

Example:

I went and created what I call the "Rudy 5" kicks. Click the link to see the fully-rotatable, 3D flash thingie it makes for you or just check the pics below I grabbed by taking some screenshots.

So if you're the type who digs kicks, saunter over there, design your sneaks, and share your link when you're done.

Edit Update: The website is pretty new as I understand, so there might be a few bugs. I suggest only having one window or tab open at a time on the site. I tried opening multiple windows and designing multiple shoes at the same time and it failed. I tested with Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Safari and all seemed to handle one tab/window just fine though.
