The last 72 hours have been crazy.

My sketch was meant to be a joke, but people pushed it and now I have a chance to send a proper pitch to Adidas.

I can’t thank you all enough…

This is where the hard work starts. It’s one thing to post a sketch and have it go viral and it’s another thing to actually get a shoe designed and put into production.

Please understand that this might fall through and be nothing more than a viral sketch at the end of the day.

Nevertheless, I promise to give this my absolute best and learn from the experience.

Thank you so much for all your help. Please keep me in your prayers.
