Football is just a game, but if there’s any team who knows what Haiti is going through right now, it’s the NFC Champion New Orleans Saints. Two of the most media-stirring tragedies in the past decade, the link up between Nawleans and Port-au-Prince is perhaps even more obvious given the Super Bowl in Miami a mere 700 miles (less than NY to Chicago!) from the earthquake epicenter.
These adidas adiZero Ace 2 runners are just sneakers, but Saints flank-back Reggie Bush designed them on miadidas.com in the Hatian national flag’s colours as a way to extend the spirit of resurrection. The ‘Help Haiti‘ enscribed kicks are available at adidas Football’s Facebook page or the miadidas website for $105. Good shoe, even better cause. And possibly best of all, expect a bunch of game-used Super Bowl XLIV stuff on eBay next week to support the Haiti relief efforts.
