An atmos Design Contest Finalist
By Sameeksha Ambolikar

The name “Leoquest” derives from the combination of the words “Leo” for leopard and “quest” for the desire to hunt. Together, the sneaker's name suggests a search for your inner strength.

Behind the Design

A fearless, powerful leopard inspired Sameeksha Ambolikar's concept due to the animal’s strength and dignity. She believes this creature teaches humans how to live a balanced and simplified life.

Sameeksha created this sneaker with the idea of “rebellion is coming.” She hopes to empower others to feel confident, courageous, and fearless. 

The Details

Love for Nature
