This year's Future Sole competition involved four categories in which students presented their best design concepts: a Jordan Brand signature shoe for Carmelo Anthony using New York as an inspiration, a Jordan T-shirt design inspired again by Carmelo and New York, a Converse signature shoe for J.J. Barea, and a Nike Basketball shoe built for a power forward. Judging the entries was a panel of experts that included Sandy Bodecker, Vice President of Nike Action Sports; Justin Taylor, Jordan Brand Footwear Designer; and Leo Chang, Nike Basketball Footwear Design Director. The competition was tough, but the pool of entrants was eventually narrowed down to two finalists for each category. Hit the jump to see the list of finalists who made the cut, as well as images from the event.
