with a background in architecture, KXIV has reimagined a pair of ‘jordan XI’s’ based on the white temple and black house of chiang mai, thailand. the associated skills from the creative discipline have allowed the designer to turn the patterning, logos, and text into CAD linework. afterwards, the vectors were lasercut over the course of 16 hours. the final product is a luxury sneaker comprised of black python, buffalo, and metallic cowhide on the upper, pull tab, and heel counter. these components are accented by a mixture of pig and lamb for the gold lining of the toe box while the transparency of the sole and its details have been preserved.
