A Closer Look at Argo Concepts' Handmade adidas Iniki Runner
Cam Stewart — aka Argo Concepts — has made a name for himself in the sneaker world for his imaginative digital sneaker creations. While we've come to know him best for his wild hybrids and pop culture—themed colab renders, the talented creative has secretly been building up his real-world shoe making skills.
In his most challenging project yet, Cam took one of his most beloved Three Stripes silhouettes, the adidas Iniki Runner — or as it is now known, the I-5923 — and rebuilt it from scratch using the finest vegetable-tanned leather. The signature stripes and adidas logos have been burned into the design through laser-engraving, as well as a sneaky 'ARGO' addition in place of the standard model branding.
Constructed in a process that took over 30 hours in hand-sewing alone (for a total of 1,576 stitches!), the finished product is a testament to perseverance and passion.
Sadly, Cam's design is a personal one-of-one and is not up for sale, but we can't wait to see what this talented designer cooks up next!
