Unusual sneaker collaborations are nothing new. Anyone remember Nike and Ben & Jerry’s Chunky Dunkys, the Lego-branded Adidas shoe or Reebok’s recent partnership with mid-century modern furniture designer Eames? Such strange design collabs are often the result of brands vying to stand out in a crowded sector. Enter Heineken’s “Heinekicks,” a sneaker with which people can drink beer.
For this creation, Heineken teamed up with “The Shoe Surgeon,” aka Dominic Ciambrone, a celebrated sneaker designer who has made kicks for the likes of LeBron James, DJ Khaled and Drake.
