Facebook Adidas Shoes

We’ve shown you plenty of cool Facebook t-shirts, but web & graphic designer Gerry McKay brought the social network phenomenon to a different kind of apparel when he designed the first pair of Facebook shoes! From the Behance project page:

This is a small project which I was recently working on which brings together Adidas and Facebook. 2006 was the 35th anniversary of the Adidas Superstar and to coincide with that, Adidas released a collection of limited edition trainers. Facebook as a brand is increasingly on the rise, I thought it would be interesting to see what it would look like if Adidas also released a limited edition Facebook Superstar, so I worked on my own design of the shoe and this is what I came up with.

Apart from the inevitable Facebook and Adidas logos on the shoe’s tongue, back and side, there’s a slogan printed inside of each trainer. One says “Facebook is a social utility that connects you with people around you” while the other goes “Making the world open and connected.” We think it would’ve been cooler if the buyer could customize these trainers with two of his favorite status updates instead. And now that we’re dreaming up new features for these shoes, what about a GPS tracker that lets you check into Places, a pedometer that at the end of each day publishes the total number of steps to your profile, oh, and a “Kick” feature that allows you to take real life revenge on those who poked you.

McKay (aka Gezza Mondo) also designed Twitter shoes which you can see here, but for obvious reasons we prefer the blue sneakers shown above. Now unfortunately for the fans, these kicks aren’t for sale and probably never will be. So we rolled up our sleeves and designed our own Facebook Adidas Shoes:
