Entering a tent filled with thousands of imbibing Bavarians seems like nightmare for your footwear, which are likely to get soaked in beer and puke. Fortunately, German shoe legends adidas have a solution just in time for Oktobefest: a special edition sneaker that is lager and vomit repellent, plus are color coordinated to match your lederhosen.
The new “München Made in Germany” are actually a throwback to an older model, with a few key upgrades. The base color scheme, speckled laces, and embroidered heel cap are designed to match your lederhosen. Next to the iconic adidas triple stripes and “Prost” is written in gold. And, then there are the space age materials for withstanding the rigors of sloshing around a beer tent. Adidas marketing promises, “finest leather with DPBR coating make a durable puke & beer repellent upper.”
The München are available at the 43einhalb sneaker store of Friday afternoon(Sept 1). The shop is a legendary destination, but don’t worry, they ship internationally also. The price comes in at a festive €199.95.
