Adidas has an enterprising shoe design; the Decade Lo “Dia De Los Muertos”. In Spanish, “Dia De Los Muertos” means “The Day Of The Dead”. This Day is celebrated on November 1 and 2, together with the Roman Catholic celebration of All Saints’ Day and All Souls’ Day. The Decade Lo, as its name suggests, has a low cut at the heel. This shoe is entirely black. The festive day is commemorated with the prints. There are two basic graphic illustrations of the skulls. One of these skulls has a hat-like structure encircling it. This hat looks like the Mexican sombrero.
I like the colorful print. The sober darkness of death is dispelled by the colorful skulls. I like the smooth finishing of the shoe. It allows me to clean my shoe easily by using a damp cloth to wipe away the dust. Black is a good color for outdoor shoes. The smooth surface allows the superficial stains to be wiped off and the shoe will look as good as new. The black soles are purposeful in function. On those two festive days, the living relatives visit the graves to pay respects to the dead. The black soles are good for stepping around in the open cemetery.
