Vibe Auctions Of Adidas To Celebrate 15 Yr Anniversary

Vibe magazine and Adidas have gotten together to commemorate the 15 year anniversary of the magazine and to keep the arts alive in the South Bronx which is the birthplace of hip hop.

Adidas will launch a limited-edition shoe line next week in recognition of Vibe magazine’s 15th anniversary. Performers including Cassie, T.I., Estelle, Pepa and Musiq Soulchild have signed the Forum Mid XVibe, which retails for $125.

The shoes are available through a Vibe.com charity auction until Sept. 25. Only 1,500 pairs of the Mid Xvibe will be sold in select nationwide markets.

One hundred percent of proceeds from VIBE's online-only sneaker auction will support THE POINT, an organization dedicated to youth development and cultural and economic revitalization of Hunts Point, Bronx. Specifically, this auction's proceeds will make possible youth development music and radio programs for kids in grades 1-12.

If you miss out on the chance to bid for the shoes online, you can visit adidas Original stores beginning September 25, 2008 for a suggested retail price of $125.
