Adidas and Berlin’s transport authority have released a specially designed pair of sneakers that doubles as a train pass.
Earlier this week, hundreds of eager sneaker and transport fans camped overnight in an effort to score a pair, they sold out the same day.
Berliner Verkehrsbetriebe (BVG) collaborated with Adidas to release 500 pairs of the limited-edition sneakers that cost €180.
It’s a bargain considering the cheapest annual train pass from BVG costs €728, which means you save hundreds of euro while snapping up new shoes. BVG says the train ticket lasts until December 31st, 2018.
The shoes even feature accents with the same vivd camouflage-type print seen on Berlin’s tram seats.
There aren’t any ticket turnstiles on the Berlin subway. Instead, ticket inspectors do random checks on trains, so if you’re wearing these shoes, you would just presumably show them the ticket on the shoe’s tongue.
