Laced is a student written and designed book premised on the cultural impact, comprehensive historic background, and evolution of the basketball shoe. The narrative was developed with multiple wide-ranging sources with articles dating from 1975 to 2019.
Each page is fully illustrated with painstaking detail to create clean and meticulous imagery.
The cover of the book was fashioned with leather and stitched together to stay cohesive to the material of the artifact.
The concept of the book is to make each individual card placed in an envelope to represent a 2D shoebox. Each envelope has the date, logo at the time the shoe was conceptualized, and preliminary information on the front, while the bulk of the material is on the back of the card inside.
