pensole x fn platform: johnston & Murphy B A C K >
From December 2015 to January 31, 2016, I had the opportunity to work with Pensole Footwear Design Academy for a second time. This concept was created for the Pensole x FN Platform Challenge, with Johnston and Murphy as the focus brand. Each year, FN Platform has categories they focus on, with this selection being geared towards 'Bond'. Bond creates the best shoes for the modern and debonair man. The design focus was on the traveling business man, with much exposure to worldly experiences, but desires support, function, and style. The final design incorporates quilted Italian leather, black waterproof full-grain leather, and a cleated rubber track outsole for stability and functionality on the move.
