If you’re going to an event with a reputation like Oktoberfest, it’s best to wear appropriate footwear.
Adidas, a German company that probably knows a thing or two about one of the country’s most famous annual traditions, created the perfect shoe for it.
Called the München Made in Germany, the shoe was created specifically for the rowdiness at the festival — including the likely spillage from both mugs and mouths. The shoe’s central feature is its leather, which was dipped in a hydrophobic substance so it can repel liquid from any source.
The shoes also come with an appropriate colour scheme mirroring the one featured in traditional lederhosen and the colour of beer. Inside, its checkered white and red to match shirts traditionally worn under lederhosen. The heel has traditional embroidery, and the German word “prost” — cheers — is printed in gold where the model number would normally be.
The shoes retail for €200 ($239 USD), and are only available in Europe.
