Your New Oktoberfest Accessory: Beer-Proof Shoes
Put on your dirndl and strap up your lederhosen, Oktoberfest season is here, but wait… Don’t wear your good, new sneakers to Oktoberfest they’ll get beer all over them. No way! Not these shoes. They are beer and puke-proof!!!

Oktoberfest season is upon us, some would argue that this is “the most wonderful time of the year.”
You love Oktoberfest as we all do, but so much spilled beer and so many ruined shoes. Well, Adidas has your back with their new “Munchen Oktoberfest Made in Germany Shoes.” And yes, that is the official full name.
These limited-edition shoes are covered in what the company calls a “DPBR Coating” (durable puke and beer repellent coating). This, while sounding ridiculous, is actually helpful at any Beerfest or night out when people may not be drinking as responsibly as they should which means that despite their incredibly expensive price of $240 you will probably get good use out of them.
They are pretty sleek and stylish gold on black and also have traditional German embroidery on the back to match your lederhosen or dirndl (yes, the commercials branded them for men, but I see no reason why women can’t wear them too) and a gold Prost to round off the Oktoberfestiveness.
So, lace up and hit Oktoberfest in style and the peace of mind that this year your shoes will make it through.
