What's the first thing that springs to mind when you hear "Kentucky"? Basketball? Bluegrass? Bourbon? Something that doesn't start with a "B"? Okay, so the Kentucky Derby may not immediately leap to your mind, but designer Jen Mussari took a quite literal approach with her Adidas Ultra BoostX sneaker design. Thoughts?

Okay then; here is her quote about the design:

"To represent Kentucky and one of its most famed events, the Kentucky Derby, I used mint and roses."

In all fairness, the sneakers designed to represent the 50 states are for charity, namely Women Win. You can view the other sneakers, check out New Jersey, and bid on them HERE. The Kentucky shoe is a size 7 and I wear a 7, ah.
