When it comes to shoe designers, names like Tinker Hatfield, Peter Moore and Eric Avar come to mind. But don’t you forget Steven Smith, the legendary designer behind the Insta Pump Fury. Is “legendary” too big a title for the man? Nope. FYI, Smith also designed the New Balance 574, 995, 996, 997 and 1500 models – all the New Balance models you love to rock. After New Balance, he moved to Adidas for a year where he helped to launch the Torison technology in basketball shoes. Finally, he left for Reebok in 1989, where he stayed till 1997.
