atmos Design Contest Winner
By Rohan Kumar

While combat boots are often first to come to mind when trekking, Rohan created a sneaker that integrated both lifestyle and hiking. 


Trekking shoes are an extension of your feet. An ill-fitting pair with thoughtless design can slow you down and even halt your hike. Rohan originally thought of this sneaker as a boot, but the idea evolve into something more for the GRXN_EDIT_07 outsole. While combat boots are often first to come to mind, Rohan wanted to create a new model that integrated both lifestyle and hiking. 

To ensure functionality, Rohan selected the GRXN_EDIT_07 outsole due to the grip on the sole providing the ideal functionality every adventurer needs. Foreseeing the inevitable dirt and puddles every hiker encounters, he used camouflage to pay homage to the greenery seen on treks.
