INTRODUCING THE "BRINCO"

Recommended Posts

yeah, thats right...

These are no ordinary shoes.

 

A compass and flashlight dangle from one shoelace. The pocket in the tongue is for money or pain relievers. A rough map of the border region is printed on a removable insole.

 

They are red, white and green, the colors of the Mexican flag. On the back ankle, a drawing of Mexico's patron saint of migrants.

 

hop the border

"I wouldn't wear them and I wouldn't want my husband to wear them," said Blends browser Antonieta LaRussa, 28. "But the cause is awesome. There's so much opposition to immigration. She's looking at it from the other side of the fence and asking why."

 

 

 

Theres opposition to people coming here illegally you stupid cooze. Since when is aiding in illegal immigrants entering the country looking at it from the other side of the fence and asking why?

Brinco ("jump" in Spanish) is a uniquely designed sneaker, inspired by information and materials that are relevant to, and could provide assistance to, those illegally crossing the border. Artist/designer Judi Werthein has made 1,000 pairs in China, for $17 each, and has been giving them away at migrant shelters and more. The shoes were introduced in August at inSite. Werthein spent two years doing design research, interviewing shoe designers, migrants, aid workers, even an immigrant smuggler.

the money used for production design and distro of these shoes would probably be better spent for humanitarian aid IN mexico. idealistic idea, but i doubt its functional. whatever, thats my opinion

/\/\it def needs a better government, but there's a lot of bad shit going on until their government is "fixed" that can be aided by hippies and liberals... my ex worked w/ 'no mas mortas' (sp?) over the summer, helped get clean water in the nogales area, from what she said, aid was certainly in need...
