We are thrilled to know that BAO Qiancheng, our Year 4 Product Design student won the PENSOLE World Sneaker Championship 2018. His impressive design is inspired by the perspective lines of the crowded skyscrapers and neon signs in the metropolis Hong Kong. These inspirations become the radical direction shoe lace system and the translucent soft TPU bar fused on the shoes. The design outcome has a clean and iconic silhouette and innovative structure, which makes it stand out from all the competitors. Qiancheng comes from Wenzhou, Zhejiang Province and was admitted via China’s JEE.
PENSOLE is founded by the famous sneaker designer D’wayne Edwards who was the chief designer of Nike Jordan Brand. His most famous design is Jordan XXI. A limited quantity of Qiancheng’s winning design to be branded PENSOLE will be produced and sold at select Foot Locker stores globally.
Congratulations to Qiancheng!
