METAMORPH: A prototype under construction

METAMORPH: A prototype under construction

October 12, 2018

Daniel Gonçalves presented METAMORPH in the last edition of the PENSOLE World Sneaker Championship, reaching the Top 16. A few months later, we brought it to life.

When we look at a product, all we see is the end result. We never think about the process behind it, many times missing the most interesting part.

METAMORPH was designed to resemble a prototype under construction, by overlaying patterns and stitches until they are finally conceptualised.

As a deconstructive look, it's curved lines offer dynamism to the sneaker, which was materialized into neutral colours, not discriminating genres. It is a genderless shoe, for everyone bold enough to wear it.

In a time where there is a huge demand of diversity, this sneaker represents a free "wave" for each and everyone to follow.
