The Blackspot Sneaker

blackspot.jpg I just bought a pair of Blackspot sneakers. These are sneakers that are being commissioned by - a pro-consumer-freedom organization somewhat affiliated with Ralph Nader.
I love the concept - basically in an effort to compete against corporate branding and consumerism run amok, Adbusters has decided to create an unbranded sneaker. It is a political and fashion statement against Nike specificallly and against corporate control of consumer freedom in general. I'm totally into subverting corporate control and unbranding things. How many brands have been forced into your mental landscape in the last 5 minutes?
