Over the past couple of years, Heineken has teamed up with the likes of New Era and Dee & Ricky for their “Heineken 100″ program which celebrates tastemakers around the world. For their latest program Heineken has partnered with Los Angeles-based retail store Union LA and designer Mark McNairy to create an exclusive version of Mark McNairy’s classic saddle shoe.
“Union LA and Mark McNairy are excited to work with a stellar brand like Heineken for their coveted ‘Heineken 100’ program,” says Chris Gibbs, owner of Union LA. “When designing the shoe, Mark and I used Heineken’s signature kelly green color to provide an eye-catching colorway for the sole.”
I was a fan of Heineken’s collab with New Era, but this saddle shoe is hands down one of the best looking products to come out of the “Heineken 100″ program in my opinion. The saddle shoe, which is made of leather, sports a green sole indicative of the Heineken brand. I’m all for a pop of color and it’s done perfectly on Heineken’s collab with Union LA and Mark McNairy. (Pictures courtesy of Heineken)
