Tlaltecuhtli x Converse
This is an old project from my freshman year back in 2010. But it’s still one of my favorite projects because I love the results and would definitely wear these myself.
The prompt was to create two design for Converse shoes inspired in the Tlaltecuhtli monolith.
This is the first design, which is supposed to be more feminine. I love the little, black swirl detail at the base of the shoe.
The second design was supposed to be more masculine, although I think it’s rather gender neutral. The highlight in this is the feathers and symbol on the side of the shoe, opposite to the Converse logo.
What do you think? Would you wear one of these?
