For ITS Contest 2022 Lotto selected 3 designers among all applicants, challenging them with the design of a sneaker proposal inspired by the Lotto basketball history, driving inspiration from basketball stars style and reinventing it with a more contemporary fashion feel.

Lotto provided the designers with the sneaker paper pattern and sample, allowing them full freedom in terms of how fabrics and materials could be treated, coloured, painted, or transformed to express their ideas.
