Eternal Fame: adidas Memory Game

Creative manufacturer "Himmelspach Publishing" launched "Eternal Fame", the most challenging game of Memory ever created. The game revisits memorable moments in sports history and presents them in a new manner from unexpected angles. Shoes from the adidas archives, originally worn by outstanding international athletes who made sports history, were captured in photographs. The archive includes such exemplars as the shoes Fritz Walter wore for the 1954 World Cup, the pair worn by Muhammad Ali when he won Olympic gold in 1960 in Rome, the running shoes of Ethiopian legend and record holder Haile Gebrselassie or Steffi Graf's 1988 sneakers, that she's laced up for the Grand Slam and while winning Olympic gold in Seoul – glorious moments made in sports heaven.

The memory game comprises 72 cards making up 36 pairs. What might sound like an easy task quickly turns out to be quite a tricky challenge, given that the images on a pair of cards are not identical: each couple depicts a pair of trainers on one card – many of which are signed – and the sole of the shoe on the other. The game comes complete with a poster showing all the sports legends and the story behind the shoes theyʼve worn.

The collectors edition of the Eternal Fame adidas Memo Game is a great holiday gift for sneaker enthousiasts and now available at Patta for €40.00.
