Gnarly Sneaker Concept Gives Us A Glimpse Of Future Footwear


It’s pretty tough work predicting what the future will look like; especially when it comes to clothing. Thankfully, David Olivares has given us a glimpse of what we might be wearing on our leg-ends in years to come.


With the growth in the wearable’s market increasing, we should expect that shoes of the future would contain tech such as sensors to measure our stride length, measurement devices to accurately check how fast we are running and various other technical specs. They might also contain special materials to help us run further and take more comfortable strides when walking, and the dreamers might even imagine little jets that pop out of the sides. The latest look at the sneaker-boot hybrid of the future, however, shows us that whilst they might look pretty fascinating, the shoe of the future will, actually just be a shoe; albeit a groovy looking shoe that is a bit weather resistant.


David Olivares created the Y3 sneaker/boot hybrid concept, which has a futuristic shape and multi-layered weather resistance. Additional design elements then include hold-down straps, clip closure, and Boost sole tooling.


Check out his page on Behance and you will see some other cool projects that he has been working on, including the football boot of the future and a Tesla racer.
