adidas develops pröst beer proof sneakers for oktoberfest

in celebration of oktoberfest 2017, adidas originals has created a special take on the classic ‘münchen’ sneaker. the newly released ‘pröst’ boasts a couple of unique features — most notably its high-quality leather is coated in DBPR, ensuring that the shoes are both beer and puke resistant, which will undoubtedly come in handy while attending the world’s largest beer festival.

adidas originals’ ‘pröst’ sneakers are influenced by bavaria’s famed lederhosen leather pants, taking design cues from their functionality and tough leather construction. the limited edition ‘münchen’ is also lined with red and white micro-checked inspired by the oktoberfest’s tablecloths, while a custom inscription above the classic three-stripes reads ‘pröst’ in gold lettering, translating to ‘cheers’ in german. lace them up, raise your glasses, and remember to enjoy responsibly — or not, they have it covered.


  • The word is Prost, not Pröst. There is no such word in German. Come on Designboom! 🙁
