are you looking for Manheim-specific souvenirs or something more generally 'German'

What time of the year are you visiting - if you are there during the Christmas markets you will be able to buy all manner of beautiful German christmas decorations

A few years ago I bought some great inexpensive espadrille shoes in a garden shop in the Mannheim train station.

I always like useful items, such as Viertel's, quarter liter wine glasses with usually green handles, or beer steins. For the later, a flea market may have interesting ones at low prices, and other items there may be of interest at low prices and be actual antiques.

Why would anyone suggest espadrilles as a typical German gift?

Look for authentic hand carved wooden items or pottery.

I would suggest espadrilles because it was a good buy in Mannheim, and for me they were special. And I would give something special as a gift. Nowhere does OP say the gift must "represent" Mannheim.
