For the 2nd year in a row OSD has been personally involved in the Nike / Jordan brand Future Sole competition. If you've been in tune with the OSD movement then YOU KNOW we ride really seriously for this competition. Why? the future of sneakers depends on it. Last year's competition spawned one of the best sneaker releases (in my humble opinion) for 2010 so far in the Future Sole Melo M6 that released a few months ago. If you still don't have a pair Here's your chance to get them by clicking NOW!
THIS YEAR'S COMPETITION...OFF THE CHAIN ONCE AGAIN!! With the finalist pool expanded a bit, we were able to meet and interact with a couple more contestants than last year. The growth in support within Nike / Jordan as well as the increase in traffic to the Future Sole Website which got close to 1 million hits this year proves that the contest is on full display around the world now. I'm very happy to be a part of it, and I'm very happy about the future of sneakers. I actually told all of the finalists that based on their designs and presentations of them that..if I no longer like sneakers in 5 years IT'S THEIR FAULT- LOL! That's how much I believe in the talent, passion, and support they received from their families and mentors. Salute to my homie DWayne Edwards as well!!!
So without further delay...Here are the some of the images of the WINNERS AND THEIR DESIGNS as captured by Sole Collector and Eastbay
