Hispanic Heritage Month is coming to an end, so for a final hurrah Foot Locker‘s Greenhouse talent incubator and adidas have tapped three Latin American artists for uniquely personal takes on the SPEEDFACTORY AM4.

First is Lucia Hierro of New York. Inspired by her native Dominican Republic, Hierro has covered the AM4’s knit upper in an all-over plantain print for a nod to a staple DR food. She’s then joined by M. Tony Peralta, another NY-based artist who hails from the DR. Instead of an all-over print, Peralta has opted to dress his shoe’s black base in red, yellow and blue paint splatters, while also equipping the heel with a special graphic. These vibrant embellishments nod to the annual carnival that takes place in his mother’s hometown of Santiago de los Caballeros. Finally, Bryan Avila — a Mexican artist residing in LA — mixes a yellow base with bold cartoon-style drawings inspired by the blue agave plant, the base ingredient in Mexico’s fine tequila.

Although they’re vastly different in their styles, each pair does indeed offer some semblance of similarity, thanks to their full-length white BOOST footbeds and black Continental rubber outsoles. An adidas stamp on the insole with an “Assembled in the U.S.A.” hit completes the look.

Looking to secure a pair? They’re available now, exclusively on the Greenhouse app. The retail price is set at $150 USD.
