Mensch ärgere dich nicht

Johannes Thiem

A classic German game with a great wisdom of life. The name of the game means ‘Do not get annoyed’ (literally ‘Do not get annoyed ‘buddy’). The name derives from the fact that a peg is sent back to the ‘out’ field when another peg lands on it.

Adapted for everyone from 6 to 99 years, for two to four players including joy and a great walking comfort. All jokes aside! For most of the kids this game really characterizes their childhood, either as winner or the one who kicks out all figures out of anger. For all these players, mostly for the last ones mentioned, this game has a wisdom of life! ‘Mensch ärgere dich nicht’ or in English ‘don´t worry be happy’! It’s not just, it’s a game and more a lifestyle. You can get this game in various styles so why not as a shoe? So I’m not just presenting you a ‘crazy shoe’, but also a positive attitude!

Material: The upper is a printed textile with the original ‘Mensch ärgere dich nicht’ design. The heels and laces are decorated with dices.
