BERLIN — Berlin’s transit authority, BVG, will release its own limited edition line of sneakers, in collaboration with Adidas Originals, that will include an annual transit pass, enabling the wearer to get free travel on subways, trams, trains, buses, and ferries anywhere within Berlin public transit zones from January 31st to the end of the year, CityLab reports.

The sneakers will feature the unmistakable seat upholstery pattern featured on the city’s public transit fleet on the heel with the sneaker’s tongue featuring a fabric version of the annual BVG season ticket.

The sneakers are $215 a pair, which is significantly cheaper than the cost of the $869 annual pass. Only 500 pairs will be for sale at two different Berlin shops. For the full story, click here.
