Adidas High Top Boost Sneaker
My name is Francisco Planelles but everybody call me Paco.
I am Spanish and I am a professional footwear designer since 20 years ago. All my whole life I have been fascinated about footwear since I was three years old. When I was 6 years old I started doing my first footwear sketches until now I am 44. I still have the same passion since I was a little kid.
I had a previous 3D background using Rhino, but it wasn´t what I was really looking for.So I jumped into Blender and I am still pretty amazed. Today I am on my second year
using Blender. I have started with the 2.79 and now with the 2.83.
Today I am former Zara Kids 3D Footwear Designer working mostly with Blender and I really love it. I use sculpting really often and then I do retopo.
About "Adidas High Top Boost Sneaker:"
For this shoe I wanted to mix four Adidas models in one, sculpting all together and find a way to do a great product. Sculpting and then doing retopology. I took the colour combination
from Jordan with translucent outsole idea and I added Boost technology visible also from the outsole.
I brought all texture maps from Substance and set them with Node Wrangler Addon. I set also the lightning with three lights for support and one Hdri. Then Cycles 700 samples, a camera and action.
