Adidas and Refinery29 have collaborated in designing running shoes that you likely have never seen before, or ever will again.
Eleven women, including 10 artists and one Refinery29 fashion editor, helped create the themed women’s UltraBOOST X running shoe to represent all 50 states. For example, artists designed peaches for Georgia, purple lilac for New Hampshire, and mountain landscapes and canyons for Utah. The Pizza shoes represent New Jersey.
According to Refinery29, artists used “sand, acrylic paint, thread, beading, clay, faux flowers and more” with some pretty incredible results. The limited edition shoes were available through an Adidas online auction.
Just over here adding the last pepperoni to these UltraBOOST X’s! I was given free reign by @adidasrunning to glue, stitch, paint, and of course add fake grass to five pairs to visually represent 5 of the 50 states as part of their BOOST the Nation campaign. (Pictured are New Jersey along with Kentucky, Oklahoma, Indiana, and North Dakota) With the powers of 10 other women artists combined, we covered the entire USA! Check out the rest of the project that unifies sport and art (and maybe get your favs?!) here – all proceeds go to Women Win!: http://bit.ly/JenMussari #4thofjuly #adidas #ad #ultraboostx
