Abstract: The Art of Design looks great, especially the footwear design episode, and all of the episodes are available on Netflix now.
Core 77 has covered that particular episode well-
“Solving problems” is something you continually hear Hatfield say throughout the episode; for those who think of footwear design as frivolous, it’s eye-opening to hear how, for instance, an NBA player’s feet are “trashed” after ten years on the court as a result of footwear that does not meet their needs. And how do you stop a 220-pound man from rolling his ankle during a crossover? Hatfield’s focus on finding pragmatic solutions for athletes competing at the highest levels drives him, as it drove Bowerman, to take pen to paper.
