In April, Nike launched the 2009 Future Sole Design Competition. High school students between the ages of 14-19 interested in footwear design enter their renderings into one of two categories: Nike or Jordan. The grand prize winner of the competition will receive $7,000 in supplies and software, and will also be greeted with a round-trip flight to “The Beav” to meet and talk kicks with Nike’s in-house creators. Registration will end on June 1st, so prospective entrants, get your work in!
After entering the competition, we encourage you to become a part of the Sneaker Files x 2009 Future Sole Side Competition. To join, enter a tagged rendering of your design (Yes, your design MUST BE TAGGED!) following this format: SNEAKERFILES.COM x “Your Tag”. Next, upload your work to Photobucket. To finish strong, send Sneakerfiles a message on our Twitter (@Sneakerfiles) account with a link to your design included. We’ll pick two winners who will win a pair of Air Jordans in their size. Finalists will be announced on August 5th, so get it crackin’, people!

Good luck and g’day!
