1HUND(RED) shoes are really cool!
What a great idea! For Converse' 100th anniversary, they are asking 100 artists around the world to design a shoe. All of the profits go to The Global Fund, which provides money to fight AIDS in Africa.
Their idea was to show how art and creativity can change the world.
After seeing sneakers worn with formal wear at the Grammy awards the other night, I have been thinking about how iconic sneakers have become, especially Converse and Chuck Taylors. I'm starting to wish that I could afford to collect all one hundred pairs!
