Ronin spends over 9 days filming Osamu Koyama, the artist behind jewelry brand Complete Technique, as he sketches, molds, and builds his masterful gold-plated design upon a blank Nike Zoom Force 1. Osa’s take on the snowboarding boot was commissioned by the brand for their Shoeshine Project 2012.

Both the documentary film, as well as Osa’s piece, have been dubbed ‘American Eagle.’
