Wear some classic Catan on your feet
We all know that Klaus Teuber's Catan is one of the most influential board games of the modern era, but have you ever wanted to take that all love for trading wheat for sheep, and… wear it on your feet? Asmodee Entertainment has announced a partnership with Plainview Shoes to produce Catan Footwear. Lyndon Tucker, President of Plainview Shoes, explained in a press release:
“We are excited that we can add CATAN to our portfolio of gaming footwear. After partnering with Capcom for footwear based on various videogames, CATAN was the logical choice for us to expand into tabletop games and its huge fanbase. CATAN is the premier boardgame of our time. It truly is a modern classic and many of us let this quirky German boardgame into our lives in our twenties. CATAN is both full of nostalgia and very current, with its central element of cooperative competition for the good of all and the stewardship of natural resources. Gaming Properties in the licensed footwear space are greatly underrepresented and we know there are a great many fans out there who look to express themselves with gaming-inspired footwear.”
No details are available about the style or design of the Catan footwear, but they are scheduled to hit stores in 2021, with more details expected soon. Read the full press release here.
