I have seen a few other people model a shoe which inspired me to try and model a shoe. It was a fun model to make as a shoe has interesting geometry. This whole project proved to be a fun challenge. The model was created completely in 3ds Max with the textures created in Photoshop.
Here is just a short video showing the different stages of the model. The first image is the base model, then it is shown with subdivision, and finally textures.
