And just like that, the greatest shoe to ever be created was.
Thanks to the UltraBOOST x Refinery29 collaboration, an Adidas pizza-inspired shoe exists and it’s beautiful. Absolutely beautiful.
The story behind this unique pair of running shoes goes like this: There’s an entire collection of crazy new Adidas kicks that were designed by a group of 10 female artists. They are shoes designed for women by women, it’s perfect!
Each pair of shoes represents 1 of the 50 states. The cheesy, pepperoni pizza shoe happens to represent New Jersey – Home of the greatest slices of pizza on this planet! (sorry New York.)
Unfortunately, the shoes are already sold out. They were gobbled up at an online auction where 100 percent of the proceeds were donated to Women Win, an organization dedicated to empowering girls through sport.
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
