Ladies, if you’re a fan of VaporMax then you don’t want to miss out on the VaporMax Run Utility coming in black and white next week. We’ve been loving this innovated style because it’s easy to go from the gym to the street while staying in the best athleisure footwear.
As you know, this design puts you right on top of Air Max technology which gives your foot the capability of feeling the air unit with every step. With detailing of Flywire cables that stretch from the air unit to the forefoot, this provides a secure lockdown feel.
The Air Max 95 wasn’t always praised in the sneaker world like it is now. Many people weren’t very supportive of Sergio Lozano during his creative process when he was designing the Air Max 95. The visual design of the 95 was based on the human anatomy where the spine of the shoe resembled the human spine and the placement of the materials intended to represent skin, ribs, and tendons. This design was unlike anything to ever be done, but if you ask someone today to name a historical Air Max; Its almost guaranteed they will say the Air Max 95. This next pair gets dressed in a clean ‘Aqua’ or ‘Grape’ colorway that has a true 90’s vibe. A cool grey serves as the base color, while teal and purple panels and lace loops add a plentiful helping of old-school style. Further purple and teal color blocking arrives on the tongue badge, while a black midsole with teal Air Max units and a purple outsole complete the whimsical look.
After its initial run in the 1990s, the Swoosh Brand’s Air Max Deluxe was stowed away in Nike’s expansive archive with little to no releases ever hitting shelves. Now, in the sneaker industry’s incredibly maximalist culture, the Deluxe is enjoying a resurgent campaign due to its wildly boisterous shell. Its head-turning upper allows for immense color blocking capabilities, while its Air Max 97-inspired sole unit keeps its fundamentally rooted with NSW’s signature aesthetic. Next up for the 90s cult classic is a navy and red colorway that sees itself sporting a classic color combination that looks tremendous together on almost any model. Its pearlescent heel unit provides an appealing touch while white and black elements make their presence known for much needed contrast. The Air Max Deluxe is a maximalist sneaker lover’s dream with a unique look unlike anything else that is sure to standout.
As one of the latest silhouettes for Nike, the Epic React Flyknit has been a hit since its debut. Ladies, if you’re waiting to get your hands on another pair then you will love this next colorway. Sporting a black flyknit upper and gold/copper Swoosh, the look is sporty and sleek.
As the face to this new release, Chloe Kim is in full #GoMode for the ladies. The Olympic Gold Medalist shows off the lightweight design and effortlessly ties her workout style with the running shoe.
One of Charles Barkleys sneakers from his time on the hardwood is making its return just in time for basketball season. Straight from the 90’s, the Air Force Max CB was a big man’s dream basketball shoe that could hold its own on the hardwood or the outdoors if that’s where you gave out buckets. Outfitted with colors from Barkley’s time on the Phoenix Suns, the shoe features a synthetic nubuck and leather upper with a midcut design. The adjustable strap should secure the midfoot to keep wearers locked in while the 180-degree Max Air cushioning at the heel offers impact protection. That Air unit is housed within a foam midsole that stays true to its ’90s original.
Growing up in New York City, and Israel, I’ve always had a particular sensitivity to visual polarity. Clashing of patterns, contrasting cultures, inverted colors and any other form of modern day chiaroscuro treatment that has the potential to come to life
I relate to contrast figuratively, when it comes to femininity versus masculinity, but also literally when it comes to color and subject matter. I consider myself a fine artist and digital creator/designer, but I also strongly identify as an entrepreneur, business woman, and pragmatic marketeer on this earth.
After receiving my BFA from Pratt Institute in Digital Art & Interactive Media, I went straight into advertising working for Gary Vaynerchuk at Vaynermedia, helping Art Direction for JP Morgan & Chase.
After hours, I started drawing on sneakers for Gary and his team which created a lot of buzz in and out of the agency. I started to create more customized sneakers post my time at VM. Since Gary, I’ve created sneakers for people like Casey Cott, Nigel Sylvester, Mason Plumlee, Hannah Bronfman, Martha Stewart, Rachael Ray, Andrew Zimmern, Giada De Laurentiis, Anne Burrell, Alton Brown and more, where SophDawg Creations has continually grown to be what it is today (I’d like to give a special thanks to the people who helped until now).
I was always a doodler, especially in high school, where I secreted creativity out of every moment I could. Drawing on stuff, especially sneakers has always been extremely meditative for me. It brings me to a place of simple thinking and peacefulness. In this digital age, there are so many potential options at all moments; iPhone, therefore, I am, so It’s nice to just draw and disconnect from the world.
With sneakers, there is no command-z, but cautious creativity and focused illustration. I usually send people a questionnaire to extract what types of images and messaging I’ll draw on their sneakers. When it comes to designing sneakers for myself, I bring in that clash of imagery I was talking about before. Nature versus artificiality; bright versus dark; feminine versus masculine; basketball versus flowers; city versus country; pink versus blue; sky versus land; black versus white. And so on.
Throughout my years growing up in New York City and Israel, one consistent place I would visit was my family’s home in the woods of North Western Connecticut. I always felt split between the bright and exciting city, and the calm and peaceful country. As an artist, I believe I embody both qualities pretty equally, and am excited to grow these harmonious incongruities in the future.
