"I think the rendering screams freshness and can certainly lend inspiration to our Japanese design team. The placement of the logo stripe is typically a very nontraditional approach which I admire. In addition, the forefoot element makes for a nice tie-in to the over-all design. As you know, materials can make or break a design and I feel the over-all silhouette offers creative license to build upon."
