Athletic shoe company steps up with benefit art project using sneakers
Pizza, cacti, lilacs and a venus flytrap are all part of a unique combination fundraiser and art project sponsored by an athletic shoe company.
Adidas commissioned a dozen artists to take one of the company's sneaker designs and use it as the basis for a artistic creation, one for each of America's fifty states.
The shoes sport whimsical arrangements of paint and props that pay homage to each state's character. New Jersey's shoe looks like a lace up slice of pizza. Georgia's looks like a peach. New Hampshire's shoe has a colorful depiction of the state flower- the lilac.
