Adidas has teamed up with Meissen, europe’s oldest porcelain manufacturer, to bring haute german craftsmanship to life. Both brands have come together to create an exclusive art piece: a hand-crafted porcelain ZX8000 sneaker made from premium leather and hand-painted by meissen. Weighing exactly 950 grams, the pair of sneakers was painstakingly assembled over a six month period.

The ZX8000 Porcelain will be offered in a single-lot, online-only auction which is open for bidding from 7 – 16 December, with an estimate of $1 to $1,000,000. Proceeds from will sale will benefit the Brooklyn Museum to support ongoing programs providing access to the arts for local youth.
