New Adidas sneaker is made from Berlin subway seats
Ever been on the Central Line and thought that the seat upholstery would make a decent fashion motif?
No, us neither.
But the design folk at Adidas have a keener eye for inspiration that the average Joe and so they’ve just brought out a new sneaker inspired by old Berlin subway seats.
And you know what? They’re pretty epic.
The ‘EQT Support 93/Berlin’ is being released on 16 January at the Adidas flagship store in Mitte and at Overkill in Kreuzberg, and there’ll only be 500 pairs – they’re that much of a limited edition.
Oh, and these trainers also come with a year’s free pass for Berlin’s public transport, valid from 16 January to 31 December 2018.
Pairs will go for €180 (£160) – so they’re worth it just for the pass alone.
But you know that eBay will be listing them for five times that amount within a few minutes of the sneakers going live.
Adidas, we take back everything we’ve ever said about the gum and piss-covered tube seats in London.
Please, for the love of God, come and make some Central Line sneakers that come with a year’s free oyster.
