These Dress Shoes Have A Built-In Bottle Of Whisky

You may be familiar with that subtle pep in your step after a whiskey or two, but consider the possibilities if there were an actual bottle of whisky hidden inside the sole of your shoe.

Now quit dreaming, and slip on a pair of these new limited-edition leather brogues by Oliver Sweeney, which come with a tiny bottle of Johnnie Walker Red Label built into each heel. That's innovation we can drink to.

The handsome, red suede-lined, Oxford-style brogues feature the sort of highly detailed stitching you'd expect from Oliver Sweeney, plus a few extra touches care of Johnnie Walker. There's a "tattoo" at the heel of their striding man logo, the initials "JW," and most importantly: a semi-secret compartment, sized specifically for a mini booze bottle. This is synergy people.

As always, you'll want to take care to keep them in tip-top shape, which means regularly buffing, shining, and of course, refilling the heel.
