Just wanted to post in case I didn't get a chance to draw anything else up in time.
My vote is for something non-high-top. I'm still in favor of the slip-on canvas shoe, but I assume that's out. For velcro or lace I'm impartial, though I am leaning towards lace unless the velcro is done in a novel or better-designed-than-typical way (I'll post some ideas in a drawing hopefully soon). Maybe a zipper? I dunno.
Blue and green to match the site would work. Blue and orange would be cool as they're complementary, and orange is not-quite-typical fair.
Also no leather/suede/anything-coming-from-animals so I can actually support/buy some/not feel guilty of/be proud of these shoes.
How about some kind of super sweat absorbent, extra cushiony in-sole. I'm thinkin'.... buckwheat... or a piece of a temperpedic matress.
On another note: I wouldn't use steel toes, but definitely something that would guard the toes. Just a re-enforced toe. Maybe even with a label, labeling the toe(s). Almost as if ...it were a skeletal replica of your foot. :-)
If those ideas don't sit well with you then here's a better one. You know how they have those pedometers? Well, wouldn't it be AWESOME if the pedometer was built-into the shoe but it wasn't a pedometer. Instead it was a low wattage generator. So that as you walked you charged a battery or created a charge of like 5V or something.. Then you could route that to a USB port also built-into the shoe, from which you could charge anything to an iPod to your ...... laptop?
ok well this is my shoe i did it on paint so its a bit dodgy but you sorta get the idea
i was drawing it but then i cant get it on the computer so i did this i hope you like it! :)
the back of the left shoe says mythical and the right says beast
I'm just gonna post what I put on facebook too. I'm really pushing for this idea!
The shoes should most definitely have little speakers in them so that you can listen to your favorite dance tunes and share the music! Dance party in a shoe! Or for the head-bangers, you and your pals can have sweet air band sessions! Or for lovers of ska, skank to your hearts content! With music in your shoes! It's a great idea. you know it is.
And to add to that. I like the light up idea, except I think that you should be able to turn the lights off at will. In case you are playing hide-and-seek at night, or flashlight tag, or sneaking up on a grizzly bear in it's cave. I would want to be able to get in touch with my stealthy, nocturnal mythical beast side. The shoe should definitely have some like dinosaur footprint on the bottom too.
The shoes should be high top converse that say I AM MYTHICAL, I AM BEAST in huge letters. Over the words there should be a collage of items featured in your videos............. of course there should be the mythical beast logo on the shoe. I like the idea that the shoes bottoms should say R & L (Right & Left or Rhett & Link) R on the right and L on the left. They should have your faces on the bottom too! I can't wait to buy these , good luck!
My idea is that the shoe would look like a chuck taylor high top layered with a low top over it. The under layer ,the high-top part ,should look like a sock with the mythical beast symbol in the top left hand corner. The under layer, the low top part, should say I AM MYTHICAL, I AM BEAST over and over again with various items from your videos over top. I do like the R & L idea for the shoes's underside. I can't wait to buy these shoes! : )
I really think the shoe tread should have a beast-ish footprint design, so it would leave beast footprints when you walk. The shoes could be named "THE BEAST", and this could be printed on each shoe, like a logo.
Another Fe-Mell, JeanetteWifeMoMhorphin, and I decided to collaborate on a shoe design. She had an idea for a shoe but was looking for someone to illustrate her idea. I told her that I would try to draw her shoe idea.
