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.
