Ginga - the Brazilian secret ingredient to the world’s most beautiful game: Presented by RES. Executive produced by Fernando Meirelles, the director of the incredible film City of God. Check it out, if you can. And when you do, post how you found it.

Hopefully someone can figure out how to see this thing! I'm interested.

the original link was updated later in the day, explaining the extremely limited information and distribution. 'City of God' was awesome, from both a story telling and visual standpoint. And I can't wait to see Meirelles' influence on a film about the beauty of the beatiful game. Sorry the post doesn't really go anywhere, but it was intended as more of a 'heads up' then a 'look at this'.

Since this is sorta a Nike thread, how about Nike Considered, their new line of environmentally sustainable shoes?

It's the Nike Mukluk. Supposedly trendy and cool, but oh-so-stupid-looking.

re: Considered - This is still a huge step down from companies like New Balance, Murrell, and Ecco in terms of being environmentally responsable. And it's still produced my 13 year old Malaysian teens making pennies a day. Nike is one of the worst when it comes to exploiting sweatshop labor, and their factories are consistantly being hailed as having the worst working conditions of any American supported sweatshops. 2$ in leather, 50 cents in Plastic, and three cents for labor... a pair of $100 shoes. I'd rather pay less and have a clear conscience. Sorry, not trying to be a Greenpeace loony, just trying to balance this "Gee, ain't Nike the coolest" vibe I'm getting.
