Artist Sells $215 Sneakers With Map and Compass Built In for Aliens

The BBC and other sources report a New York artist is selling sneakers for illegal aliens for $215 that include a built in map and compass.

Judi Werthein, formerly froom Argentina, calls them “brinco” – literally “jump” in Spanish.

The trainers are equipped with a compass, light, map and painkillers

The artist was commissioned by a cross-border arts exhibition called inSite to develop a project that “intervened” in some aspect of border life.

They have a flag of Mexico and a portrait of the patron saint of travelers.

While the sneakers sell for $215, they are made in China for $17.
