Marvel x Nike Dunk Low Concept (Spiderman, Green Goblin and Electro)dhavdesign
With Spiderman being one of the most iconic Marvel superhero characters in history making his MCU movie debut in 2002, I decided to create this concept design, utilising dark blue and red tones throughout the shoe. His special ability to create web fluid shooters like an actual spider is shown on the side panels and tongue. I used a design that mimics a spider’s nest, with a black web design that doesn’t overshadow the contrasting colours on the main panels. The Marvel logo is also featured on the heel alongside a bright red sole and black inner lining to overall conclude the shoe design. For the packaging I went with using a comic book cover for the top lid, making it unique and somewhat displayable. This is a very striking combination with the colour used, while using a direct source from the comics.
Green Goblin, a villain corrupted by pure evil and hatred by Norman Oscorps tech has a suit design of mainly dark green armour with hints of yellow in the MCU. I used the same character design from the movie universe with hints of purple on the soles taken from his comic book design. I chose a colorway that is very easy to style, with additional purple shoelaces that could be included. Once again I have taken a cover design from a comic of the Green Goblin for the top lid packaging and also featured the strong dark purple colour on the box.
Electro, a villain powered by electricity, has a very interesting colour scheme of dark green and yellow taken from his comic book character design. I used electricity waves on the side panels of the shoe while having a bright yellow toe box to offset the tones. In Spiderman No Way Home, the actor Jamie Foxx plays Electro and during the movie you can also see the yellow waves being charged throughout his body for some scenes. I overall love the colours being used on this concept design as it really brings the past design of Electro to the future whilst maintaining interesting details such as waves on the side panels. I also believe the shoe can be styled very well with darker pants or even a lace swap for certain outfits.
