Whisky-Soaked Shoes? Whisky-Soaked Shoes.

If shoes are the first things that pop into your mind when whisky is mentioned, then you've got some serious issues that need solving and an obvious budding foot fetish.

Regardless, it's time to start reconsidering the foot-booze-sex-matrix with The Cutty Sark x Generic Surplus Hi-Tops. Bizarre collaborative effort between two totally different brands or super-comfy footwear for hardworking, stylish dudes? Both.

The hi-tops came about to pay tribute to the hardworking bartenders who literally bust their ass (and feet) to serve the good people of America the whisky they so deserve.

A non-slip vulcanized sole will make sure you don't lose your footing in typically high-intensity-footloose situations: in a bar, on a roof, on a hoverboard, on the literal set of the 1984 classic Footloose. 

The off-white canvas lining and yellow pinstripes pay tribute to the original Cutty Sark bottles that our parents so lovingly guzzled while we watched 3,600 straight minutes of Power Rangers.

The Cutty Sark logo is also emblazoned on the tongue—hopefully in an attempt to hang onto the perpetual pun of saying: "look, there's Cutty Sark on my tongue" as you sip your whisky while wearing your shoes. Clever bastards.
