Badged: Sneaker Mission Badges - 80s & 90s Wave 1

I'm always on the hunt for a fun personal project. My only criteria is that it be "personal" and that I feel the energy to work on it and explore it. I had the random idea to do a set of space mission style badges combining my love of sneakers and badge design. I did a lot of research into mission patches for space travel and the military and wanted to try and capture some of that style. I used a combination of visual cues from the shoes themselves or from fun personal associations with the shoes or the athletes that endorsed them. These are the shoes I grew up and it was fun to try and capture something about each of them.  I hope to do wave 2 soon, but for now, thanks for checking them out!
