Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Honey Whiskey has inspired a few barrels’ worth of cocktails we love — like the Jack Daniel’s Root Canal Float and the JD & Coke Slush (both watchable below). Now, the classic liquor is also, apparently, inspiring some super well-crafted shoes. People, say hello to the Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Honey Air Forces. They’re a limited edition line based off the classic Nike kicks, and even though only 67 pairs will be made, you’ll soon get a shot at winning your own for free.
Maxim released details of the JD-inspired shoes, which are actually going to be tailor-made by artisan shoemaker, The Shoe Surgeon. And if you’re not excited about that, then you don’t know The Shoe Surgeon. Just for reference, this dude and his team make one-off kicks that start at $2,000….
The Jack Daniel’s Air Forces are going to be made from an absurd amount of high-quality materials all inspired by the dark, sensual vibes of the Tennessee whiskey, including a boatload of various high-end leathers — like Black Horween and Vachetta — distressed in a way to celebrate the aging of the whiskey. Which sounds like some marketing talk, but still, that’s some creamy, voluptuous leather.
If you want to get your hands on a pair of these bad boys, you basically have two options: You can either check out the Lynchburg General Store pop-up at 903 W. Olympic Blvd. in Los Angeles between the hours of 10 and 11 a.m. on February 17 and 18 where you’ll have a shot at winning a pair, or you can simply follow the Jack Daniel’s Twitter account — seven pairs will be bestowed upon as many lucky randos in March.
And if the shoes really aren’t your thing, here are those delicious JD drinks mentioned above:
