Oktoberfest is in full swing and Munich is inundated with tourists from all over the globe donned in traditional Bavarian attire. As not everyone who’s a fan of Oktoberfest can be in Munich festivals emulating the original have sprung up from London to Seattle. Women wearing dirndl dresses with large beers in hand sounds like one of the greatest times to be had. In honor of the iconic German festival I’m taking a look at three pairs of German footwear by Adidas in this post.
Adidas skateboarding has some of the freshest editions in the entire Adidas lineup. The Mark Gonzales (sick video) pro model continues that trend with the Adidas Skateboarding Gonz Pro. The shoe in “Grey and Fairway Green” has a vulcanized sole for pristine comfort. The shoe’s upper is done with suede and leather that looks great in grey. The touch of green details the tongue and marks an X on the back of the shoe. This pair of kicks is guaranteed comfort and its clean design definitely puts it in the everyday heat category.
The Adidas Superstar 80’s broke out a special edition for their NBA superstar Derrick Rose. This pair of kicks released October 4th to coincide with D Rose’s birthday. The shoe is done up in black leather and rocks an animal print on the stripes and tongue. There’s blue on the sock lining and on the 1988 at the back of the shoe a nod to D Rose’s birth year. The best part of the shoe is the white on the front and bottom sole that makes the whole design pop. Usually I’d think this design too flashy but since they’re made for superstars I think I can handle the heat.
The skateboarding department at Adidas is determined to produce the freshest performance sneakers. That ambition led to creations such as the Campus Vulc in “White/Black and Bluebird.” This shoe uses an off-white base in suede on the midsole and a black contrast on the laces and sole lining. The blue bird hue on the stripes is my favorite part of this pair of kicks. I’d skateboard off the Berlin wall to get my hands on this pair of heat.
The Adidas skateboarding sneaks discussed today could both be found at UK based Flatspot. The D Rose Superstar 80s can be found currently at Suppa and other Superstar 80s retailers. To do list this week is to cop some Adidas heat and get my ass to Munich Oktoberfest ends on October 16th. I probably won’t make it to Oktoberfest this year but at least German footwear provides that year round #heatonfeet.
