For the first texture we selected one with hexagons or honeycomb, which characterises the Hoji line to highlight its family feeling. This finishing is also present on other parts of the boot.
The second needed to express its distinctive and bold character identified in agility in sliding. We let ourselves be inspired by snake scales - the perfect representation of this movement.
Morphing is an artistic stratagem. It creates optical effects with a great visual impact.
Thanks to this morphing technique our designers highlighted the finishings, recognisable on the two ends, but integrated and interconnected as the heart of the finishing is reached.
To complete the Hoji Free project we proposed a progressive nuance of the finishing on the edges to reduce friction as much as possible, thus improving the performance of athletes and enthusiasts.
The aluminium moulds for the Hoji Free shells are created in parallel with the development of the finishing proposal.
When the customer confirmed the DRE Render we received the 36 half moulds and we were immediately ready to engrave, thus shortening the time to market.
