Economics Vans Authentics
These shoes were made for an economics professor at the University of Pennsylvania, and the design embody what it means to be just that. On the outer panel, there is half of the UPenn shield on each shoe, along with many economics identities and equations. On the insides, there is a PPF graph and an indifference curve marked with "u" instead of the standard "i", because this professor prefers that notation, and this further personalizes the shoes. Also, the green areas near the laces have symbols of various international currencies. On the front, there is a simplified version of a monopolistic competition graph, which flows into the world "economics" on the other shoe. Behind the writing is a faint image of Cohen Hall, the building this professor teaches economics in.
