While Hennessy is in short supply, many are turning to Jack Daniels might do the trick. But who would ever think, the world famous Tennessee Honey Whiskey would inspire such a beautiful sneaker. Designed by Dominic Chambrone, better known as “The Shoe Surgeon,” this iconic creation will be ready for All-Star Weekend.
As if a bottle of the golden whiskey fell from the production line, landing directly on Nike’s Air Force 1. This exclusive custom silhouette comes dressed to impress, like a classic whiskey sipper in a tailored three-piece suit.
Made with three types of leather, gold metal eyelets, and leather laces with matching metal aglets. Vachetta tan leather accents symbolize the whiskey’s honey flavor. Additionally, the black Horween leather symbolizes the premium quality of all Jack Daniels products. Lastly, a distressed brown leather decorates the shoes’ upper, symbolic of Jack’s signature aging process.
It is clear a lot of thought and attention to detail went into creating this masterpiece. Just like Jack Daniels gets better with time, these sneakers will age gracefully.
Keep in mind, these are exclusive.
Which means if you want a pair, you will need to be in Los Angeles on February 17 or February 18th, stop by the Lynchburg General Store pop-up between 10 and 11 AM. Get your wristband, drawings will began at 11 AM. However, if you’re not old enough to buy and sip Jack Daniels, you’re not old enough to buy these whiskey inspired Air Force 1’s.
True sneakerheads will remember that moment on MTV Cribs, when Fat Joe famously licked the bottom of his mint condition Jordan VII’s, well to those lucky few will take these luxurious customs home: we recommend you don’t lick these in public. One tender lick of these Jack Daniels Tennessee Honey Whiskey Air Force 1’s–and you just might end up feeling tipsy.
