|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.
