Adidas had artists create a pair of sneakers to represent every US state — here’s what they look like

Adidas artist

Adidas commissioned 12 women artists to create a special, one-of-a-kind Ultraboost X sneaker for each US state.

The artists used a variety of mediums to recreate iconic, state-appropriate imagery on the shoes. Wisconsin’s cheese, Georgia’s peaches, and Vermont’s green mountains are all accounted for in a unique way.

The sneakers are being sold in an online auction, and all of the proceeds will go to Women Win, a charity devoted to advancing women’s leadership. 

Take a look at how the artists represented each of the 50 US states. All shoe descriptions are by the artists. 


Artist: Meagan Morrison 

“I took inspiration from the Alabama state flower, which is a beautiful pink camellia.”


Artist: Mari Orr 

“My shoe for Alaska was inspired by snow-covered glacial mountains rising from icy depths.”


Artist: Sophia Chang

“For Arizona I wanted to capture the desert sunset gradient and the colorful cacti that fill it.”
