Shoes 008: Designing – I jumped on a computer to get a cleaner idea of my shoe design. I wanted to just hit the clay and start molding the shoe to be what I wanted. I felt like it would be easier to make the shoe the way I wanted with it in my hands.
But I also knew it wouldn’t be smart to try and shortcut this conceptual step.
You can see in the video where I caught a potential mistake regarding the direction of the weight of the soles of the shoe. This is why thumb mailing and coming is important and I have to stop rushing or skipping that part.
Once I started actually molding the clay. I could see exactly how designing in real time with your hands is a lot better for seeing issues ahead of time. But it is not fast as far as execution.
