As I mentioned before: I always wanted to do a papertoy sneaker.
When I finished my first PUMA sneakers, and posted it on NPT (Nice Paper Toy), some people mentioned that they liked the model but that there favorite PUMA sneaker is the states/suede/clyde.
I didn’t know that the PUMA states/suede/clyde is a b-boy classic.
So I couldn’t resist to make them too:
I don’t have a download link for this one, and no design yet….
But that will be fixed very soon.
The excellent Ron Rementilla from Paperkraft.blogspot.com has written about my PUMA First round papertoy (thx for that).
And suggested that readers who wanted a template, leave a comment….
Till now 10 people did and they have received the (WIP) templates…
I call the templates WIP because the instructions are not ready yet.
And because I wanted to make the PUMA clyde first, they are not ready yet.
I always wanted to do a papertoy sneaker. The bad thing is that a few papertoy designers did this before me.
And I don’t want to do something that someone else already did before me. So no urban paper sneaker for me…. Till my girl bought a pair of PUMA sneakers: they are awesome!
So I just googled a little bit about for limited edition PUMA sneaker and it convinced me to do a papertoy PUMA sneaker.
My urban paper PUMA sneaker is loosely based upon PUMA First Round model (check the online shoe customizer: PUMA MONGOLIAN SHOE BBQ)
The blank template:
My own design:
I don’t have the templates ready for publising, so you have to wait for that a little bit.
(or ask leave a comment so I can send what I have now)
Perhaps in the future I will make the model more detailed!
I don’t have to mention that the PUMA logo is not mine, right?
I read in an article about Shin Tanaka that he started creating paper models and templates for all his favorite sneakers he couldn’t afford when he was a student…
We seem to like the same sneakers!
One of my favorite Nike is create in paper by Shin: the Nike Air Force 1 is created by Shin in paper and can be found on the internet:
NIKE AIR FORCE 1 paper model and LMAC BABESTAS
download the Nike Air Force One (.PDF) here.
And the Nike AF-1 can be found here:
(or download the Nike AF-1 here (.PDF))
Shin has even had an exhibition with these sneakers:
Shin also worked together with Onitsuka Tiger and created a template for
Onitsuka Tiger – Mexico66.
You can create your own Mexico66: just download the blank version here: Onitsuka Tiger – Mexico66 (.PDF).
This project has it’s own Flash site: http://shin.onitsukatiger.co.uk/.
And you can send in your customs on the same site.
