We’re having trouble coming up with scenarios where you might be tempted to wear $500 leather shoes, while simultaneously smuggling a tiny bottle of Johnny Walker scotch. A funeral, maybe? An upper-crust tee-totaler’s box social? We don’t know, and yet there you have it: the Johnnie Tan Leather Brogue, an Italian made, custom-embroidered shoe with an almost-hidden booze compartment.
The limited edition Johnnie Walker Oliver Sweeney Brogue is a footwear first that brings together style, design and flair. The iconic Oxford Style Brogue features a reworked crank to accommodate a Johnnie Walker Red Label miniature in the heel, custom-embroidery, a striding man tattoo, red suede lining in the heel compartment and a transparent top piece to reveal the whisky from below. A sophisticated and progressive alternative to a classic, the Johnnie Walker Oliver Sweeney Brogue will make sure you boldly keep walking.
It’s actually $489 for the shoe, so not quite $500.
