Championship Barbecue Equipment by Adidas?



Really?
Barbecue shoes?
You bet!



Thanks to a collaboration between San Francisco's Upper Playground design group and Adidas you can be sporting these spiffy red and white gingham barbecue inspired shoes complete with a kettle grill on the back and some shiny silver utensils on the side. These elements will considerably improve the overall barbecue experience. I understand these shoes are equally effective in the support of both the cookery and eating aspects of the barbecue sport.

Interestingly the inspiration for these shoes is one of my favorite barbecue restaurants; Memphis Minnie's. You can search through the blog archive for a full review on Memphis Minnie's Bar-B-Que Joint.

If you'd like to own a pair of these shoes you might need to look around because only 4000 pairs were ever made. If you find a pair you will want to make sure you don't drip any BBQ sauce on them because they are about $200. Of course there's always plenty of barbecue to go around and it costs significantly less.

We've included a video of the Walrus from Upper Playground at Memphis Minnie's in San Francisco talking about their inspiration for these shoes and other projects.
