You might not actually be able to see them as they’re mixing the perfect Old Fashioned, but isn’t it about time bartenders got a great shoe that works as hard as they do? L.A. sneaker brand Generic Surplus thought so, which is why they teamed with Cutty Sark to design a sneaker inspired by the spirit of their new Prohibition Edition whiskey with both comfort and style in mind. The black on black design brings street style indoors with a leather upper and non-slip vulcanized sole that will keep you stuck to that bar mat, board or simply the city sidewalk. White and yellow accents make them stand out while the striped lining and ship embossed on the tongue are a nod to Cutty Sark’s original whiskey bottle.
Released 90 years after Prohibition repeal, Cutty Sark’s latest scotch celebrates Captain Williams McCoy who smuggled the spirit into America back in the 1920s. The “small batch” blend is aged in hand-selected American oak casks to give it a smooth but complex finish. Bottled at 100 proof, this whiskey is sure to give you a beautiful buzz.
We tried these exclusive sneakers out this weekend, and they were perfect for everything from a fall foliage walk to hitting the dance floor. Get yours for $149.99 at genericsurplus.com.
