While the adidas T-Mac Millenium 2 has yet to make its official stateside retail debut, the shoe remains available overseas in an Orlando Magic inspired colorway. Thanks to adidas Designer, Jean Khalifé, we now can check out the behind the design process of Tracy McGrady’s latest signature shoe.
Producing a shoe all begins with a simple sketch. Not just one sketch, but multiple different sketches. Ideation, creativity, and countless hours of sketching and designing. Shown below you can see the various ideation sketching, rendering, and different mock-ups/samples created of the adidas T-Mac Millenium 2, before they were put into production.
We can also see that the T-Mac Millenium 2 arrived heavily inspired by previous T-Mac releases , which have made retro returns these past few years.
Moreover, the wear-testing and production part of creating a shoe quite possibly may be the hardest part of creating the shoe. adidas Hoops had to create different ideations of the T-Mac Millenium 2, likely done for wear testing. Different molds, chassis, and features are additionally tested.
Let us know what you think of the upcoming adidas T-Mac Millenium 2 in the comments below, and keep it locked to the site as the shoe looks to release stateside in the coming weeks.
