Completely unlike most shoes in your closet, and even its precursors, this creation will stand out this Spring/Summer as Crooked Tongues teams up with Adidas to produce 150 pairs of the MÃ¼nchen with help from Markus Thaler, a veteran Adidas designer. After a successful Oktoberfest launch of last year’s MÃ¼nchen, Thaler went on to create the ‘VIP,’ pictured above. Combining the attractive and versatile leather upper Â of ’08’s model with typically German sensibilitiesâ€”like edelweiss, hiking-boot-esque D-ring lace holes, and a wool heelâ€”the MÃ¼nchen is transformed from sneaker to bona fide shoe, embracing and representing European climate and their effortlessly cool style. Not only will these puppies keep you looking sharp in neutral tones, they’ll keep you warm and dry in the off chance you’re caught in inclement weather.
