Collecting outsole inspiration is part of my daily design research. Even though an outsole is not something you see when wearing a shoe, I do put quite a bit of creative energies into an outsole design. It’s like your little stamp, a story your trying to tell or just a feeling you had that day. I enjoy turning over a shoe and seeing a fun surprise. It’s a fun color pop, a playful design, an intricate detail, or just a cool logo badge. Design on all aspects of a shoe is important to me. Here are a few patterns I found in one of my favorite websites, Patternity. Enjoy! Cheers.
