Viðar was a son of god Odin in the nordic mythology. He kills the wolf Fenrir to avenge his father Odin by stepping down with one foot in a special leather shoe on the lower jaw of the wolf and tearing his mouth apart. His shoe is described as consisting of leather pieces that people have cut of their own shoes and given them to Viðar. It was the first case of safety footwear usage, described in Germanic myths.
