Heineken® and self-taught shoemaker Dominic Ciambrone, aka ‘The Shoe Surgeon’, have teamed up to release an unexpectedly smooth limited-edition sneaker. The collaboration was created as part of the launch strategy for Heineken®’s latest brewing innovation, Heineken Silver. The result is a unique, custom-made pair of sneakers – the “Heinekicks” – that allow you to “walk on beer”, as the sole contains beer, which gives you a unique, smooth feel when walking – as well as the smooth taste of Heineken Silver.
“Partnering with Heineken® for their new beer was a fun challenge. We both share a passion for innovation and pushing boundaries, and we created a design to reflect that. The shoe not only embodies the energy of Heineken Silver, it literally carries it. I can’t say I’ve designed a shoe that contains real beer before,” said The Shoe Surgeon.
The sneaker line’s colors also reflect the drink’s colors, and the design features a hidden bottle opener. The idea was developed by Publicis Le Pub in partnership with Singapore’s BBH and for now the sneaker will only be sold in Singapore.
