shamrock marketing group llc payday loan last month wrote a feature about talented New York designer Eric Elms. In this feature, Elms alluded to a upcoming project with Vans sneakers. This project is a brand new shoe model which should be dropping in the next few months. Check out the Hypebeast interview and the photos of the sneaker.
When is your Vans shoe coming out?
It’s coming out in a couple months, I think. The design is all done, but I’ll probably do a couple things around that. I’m going to do a sculpture based on one of the graphics related to it. The shoe isn’t a pro model or anything, they said that I could do whatever I wanted, so it’s my own model.
How did you tackle that?
It was kind of tough. It’s a totally different way of thinking. You have to draw it flat but then work in 3-D. I got a sample back and it was like my drawing, but not exactly like what was in my head. Too much of a traditional skater shoe. Once I got that sample it was easier to make changes and glue things on and re-sketch. The sample was about 95% there. It’s coming out in three colors, one’s canvas, one’s suede and one is a mix of the two.
