How to Open a Wine Bottle with a Shoe

By Brian Lemay 100 comments

irgendwann kommt dieser moment wo du einfach nur noch wahllos draufschlägt mein name ist berlin wir sind hier in berlin ich habe durst und zwar rotwein durst und ich hab kein öffnen dabei brauche also irgendeine möglichkeit um den korken raus zu bekommen aus der flasche und hab mir da was überlegt was eventuell funktionieren könnte wir brauchen eine wand zwar eine möglichst robuste stabile wand aber wir sind ja in berlin da gibt es ja doch eine ganze menge robuste wende wir brauchen einen schuh brauchen etwas robustere style um im prinzip gegen die wand wird im schuh zu schlagen dass sich der korken aus der flasche löst man muss es schaffen dass die flasche wirklich auf die wand knallt und man darf keine angst haben und ich hab ein problem gerade ich habe angst ich bin aber auch durstig der korb kommt so langsam raus und wenn es dann mal so weit draußen ist dann glaube ich ist es eine einfachheit den wein ganz langsam raus zu drehen und wir haben die flasche geöffnet ohne einen flaschenöffner wir haben uns kein becher noch und zweite sache die uns fehlt also was bleibt uns übrigen müssen aus der flasche trinken post willi

I can understand why people are desperate enough to improvise; I can understand why people want to drink from the bottle; but I can't understand why he can't wear his shoe before drinking the wine.

You can open a wine bottle simply with just your 2 hands…forget the shoe.  Place the tip of one finger horizontally over the cork. Push the finger down firmly with your opposite hand until the cork moves just a bit. Now turn the same one finger downward onto the cork, then push again with the same 'pushing' hand. You can push the cork entirely into the bottle, then pour it out.

This can work when you hammer your shoe 12 to 6 right?

additional tip : put the bottle in a sock before sticking it in the shoe then it won't break and ruin your pants !

You don't need shoes! I have used this wall-bashing trick with all sorts of padding for the bottle. If you are indoors, a tea-towel is ideal. If outdoors, any article of top-half clothing, though I can see the problems if you decide you need a bra to do it.

i would wrap bottle in a jacket or wear heavy gloves while doing this. You are almost breaking the bottle to do this. Just imagine how hard you'd do it opening your second or third bottle with a heavy wine buzz trying to show off to your friends.

Hi there, I tried to open a bottle of wine using this method. After banging it a few times I was delighted to see that the cork was starting to come out. 'A few more of those and we're golden!', I thought. Well, after banging it against the wall a few more times, the bottle shattered, with most of the contents ending up in my shoe and on my surrounding walls. Needless to say I am disappointed with the results of this method, and I hold your youtube channel personally responsible. Please get in touch if you would like to send me a new bottle of wine and a new left shoe, black, U.K size 14.

Good day
