    Lightbulb I need some opinion for this minimalist sneaker that i like to make

    Iím thinking about making a faux-leather minimalist sneaker that would look something like this. Any thoughts?

    One impressive you are going to make your own shoes. Have you done this before?

    At least two me they only look minimalist in color. The mid part of the shoe looks a little bulky like a skateboarding shoe. Is that the look you were going for? Iíd prob tend to streamline that part out if you really want minimal.

    Are you asking because you want to sell them or are you making them for your own use? I think most of us here would prefer real leather/suede.
    WHY ARE THE GUYS IN SUITS HERE? HAS SOMETHING GONE WRONG?

    The design is alright. That isnt my kind of thing personally but it looks fairly on trend. I agree on real leather though.

    When you say "making" are you talking about doing the construction yourself, or having a company do a run of them for you, or what?

    I'm a big fan of minimalist sneakers, but I don't really care for the shape. The toe is a bit too clubby looking for my taste. Also, I don't like the cloth strip up the back. Additionally, I agree with the others who say all leather.

    Agree with @smitty, the toe shape is not appealing to me. In fact the top view makes it seem like a flip flop.

    Looks like it has a wider toe box which is a big plus for me. I understand others donít like the shapes, but you canít beat it for functionality and comfort.

    As others have asked, you designing this to make yourself or a company making them for you?

    Yes, when I first looked at it, I thought the same thing. I had to take a second look to see if the shoe was open in the front.
