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.

Money raised from auctioning off the shoes benefits Women Win, which Bloomberg's Business Insider calls a "charity devoted to advancing women's leadership."

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.
