De artiesten werden met hulp van Refinery29 geselecteerd om iconische sneakers te ontwerpen voor iedere Amerikaanse staat. Van de ijzige bergen in Alaska tot de kaas van Wisconsin. Alle 50 staten van de VS zijn omgetoverd tot een UltraBOOST X sneaker voor de BOOST the Nation campagne.

De schoenen worden verkocht via een online veiling, waarbij de opbrengsten worden gedoneerd aan Women Win – een goed doel dat zich inzet voor vrouwen leiderschap. Bieden kan tot 11 juli via de Adidas website. Check hieronder enkele van onze favorieten.
