TRACY TUBERA STATEMENT:
I have always loved the design and colors of SNEAKERS. The bright colors and intricate designs are the same reasons why I love COMIC BOOKS/SUPER HEROES. Also, there is always the story behind a certain Super Hero. Their SECRET ORIGIN. The amazing story of how a character got his/her powers. Or the incredible circumstances that caused a character to become a Super Hero. Most sneakers also have their own “Secret Origin”. The process that it took a designer to get to the final look of a sneaker. What inspired the look of a shoe. What influenced the use of certain materials or colors. So many things in common that I always felt needed to be explored.
These vinyl figures are what I call S.H.S. aka Super Heroes in Sneakers- two things that meant a lot to me growing up and still do to this day. Two completely different cultures mashed together to create a new visual of things most people wouldn’t normally see together. I always wondered what kicks my favorite Super Hero would wear. That’s why I would create these illustrations and now DESIGNER COLLECTIBLE TOYS!
“I will FIGHT for those who cannot FIGHT for THEMSELVES.” The last Hero to round out the DC TRINITY is DIANA. A POWERFUL WARRIOR PRINCESS willing to do whatever it takes to bring JUSTICE to the WORLD. I wanted to depict DIANA having that perfect BALANCE of STRENGTH and BEAUTY. I wanted her to look as RIPPED and ATHLETIC as the male characters I design, but still look BEAUTIFUL. She had to look like she could hang with the BIG GUNS and DEFEAT them if she had to. I also wanted MOVEMENT in this art figure, so her minimalistic, stylized hair flows in the wind to match her flowing GOLDEN LASSO (which Doubles as a SHOE LACE!). I wanted DIANA to have Sneakers that would fit a BATTLE READY WARRIOR of Old. So I took inspiration from some CLASSIC KICKS and gave them a higher collar to mimic a GLADIATOR BOOT. Giving DIANA a Classic Warrior’s shoe with some CLASSIC SNEAKER HEAD STYLE.
