Special effect flying Nike Shoes for a Berlin dance show
May 2013

The first mock-up - the wing opening though was never going to work reliably.

The second mock-up - looks like it would work.

The first prototype - however I was then told it had to be a special Nike boot.

The wings fitted with balsawood infils and doped.

Wings covered with 'silk' doped on.

The Nike boot which was of course a completely different shape from the shoe I prototyped
consequently it need a diferent chassis.
