The crowd dissipated a while ago, so have the premonitions of glory or the loud taunts from the opponents. What is not gone, however, from http://freshnessmag.com/2010/04/22/nike-x-saint-alfred-2010-world-cup-store-detailed-photos-video/” target=”_blank”>St. Alfreds x Nike Sportswear Six Points space in Chicago are the decorative soccer balls by artists http://struggleinc.com/” target=”_blank”>Cody Hudson, http://mistercartoon.com/” target=”_blank”>Mister Cartoon, and http://dzinestudio.com” target=”_blank”>Dzine. Perhaps the term “decorative” is wrong description since each ball serves a higher purpose, to help support Urban Initiatives, a Chicago-base organization which utilize the interest for soccer as an instrument to connect with disenfranchised youth of Chicago’s inner cities. A total of 13 created, each played on the 3 artists’ signature. There are the over-top bejeweled and embellished by Dzine.
