Nicholas Chuwattanakul interprets the King James style of life in a familiar looking silhouette for our continuing LeBron James Lifestyle Design series. As we originally announced here, the next generation of designers at Project Bluefoot were recently tasked with the design challenge of creating a Lifestyle-themed footwear product for LeBron James. We have teamed up exclusively with Project Bluefoot to allow each designer to essentially “takeover” the Counter Kicks shoe silhouette logo with their Lifestyle LeBron concept and provide the backstory to it. Check the bottom of this post for a complete listing of all our previously featured designers. Continue reading to see Nicholas Chuwattanakul’s 3 design boards and full backstory.
Fashionable, strong, loud, flashy, yet humble and nice. Loves going to parties, riding fast cars, having celebrity friends, yet is a family man and team player.
Inspired by King James’ personality and lifestyle, I tried to create a shoe that reflects these elements. I wanted the shoe to look simple and easy to wear (humble) but have some parts of the shoe stand out and be eye catching (loud). The strap of the shoe reflects chilled and layed back and on the medial side of the shoe theres a huge mesh piece for ventilation to catch a cool breeze. The base of the shoe is solid rubber reflecting James’ strong physique while the various colorways reflect LeBron’s roots and playful side. -Nicholas Chuwattanakul
