A sneaker inspired by alcohol? That alone already sounds like a good story. Scottish shoe manufacturer HANON and Japanese sporting goods manufacturer Mizuno have joined forces for one ingenious collab. The duo decided on a whisky-inspired sneaker and the name itself reveals the special detail.
It’s no secret that Asian citizens have a low tolerance for alcohol. Nevertheless, it does not stop them from creating a sneaker inspired by a spirit. The Angel’s Share is a common term at the whiskey distillery. When whiskey is stored, a small amount of water and ethanol evaporate. This portion is called the Angel’s Share. According to Scottish legend, this small portion is for the angels in heaven. This is where its name comes from.
The sneakers come with a brown corduroy upper material that reminds of good whiskey. The sky-blue accents lend a strong contrast to the overall package, which is rounded off by the red details at the top. Additional brandings on the tongue and heel indicate the collaboration between HANON and Mizuno.
