In a week-long auction that will kick off Tuesday, Adidas is bringing together sports, shoes and creativity to support women.

The sports apparel company partnered with Refinery 29 and female artists “to create one-of-a-kind pairs of UltraBOOST X representing all 50 states.”

The shoe collection, called “BOOST the Nation,” is limited-edition and 100 percent of the auction sales will be donated to Women Win, an organization that empowers girls to build leadership skills and address gender equity through sport.

"It's not about competing with each other, but lifting each other up and celebrating the diversity of this country,” said Meagan Morrison who designed sneakers inspired by Alabama, California, Connecticut, Missouri and Virginia.

The custom sneakers include some extra creative pairs, including one that celebrates New Jersey pizza and another that’s checkered for Indiana.

The Oregon and Washington pairs were both designed by Bree Port, and are white with subtle color accents.

The 50 pairs of shoes will be available for bidding on from Tuesday July 4 to Tuesday July 11.
