The so-called “Heinekicks” feature the company’s iconic color scheme – green, white and red – as well as the Heineken logo, and handy bottle openers built into the tongues. But what really sets them apart from any other sneakers is the liquid floating in their transparent soles – actual Heineken Silver beer.

Who created the first sneakers filled with beer soles in 2022?
Using a specialized surgical injection method, Dominic Ciambone created the first ever pair of sneakers that allow the wearer to walk on beer. And, apparently, it’s not just about the look, as the soles also provide a smooth and comfortable walking experience inspired by Heineken Silver. The fluid shifting inside the sole as you walk is said to provide a unique feeling.
“Partnering with Heineken for their new beer was a fun challenge,” Ciambone said. “We both share a passion for innovation and pushing boundaries and created a design to reflect that. The shoe not only embodies the energy of Heineken Silver, but literally carries it. I can’t say I’ve ever designed a sneaker that contains actual beer before.”
Price of Heineken Beer Sneakers and where to buy the Heinekicks
Unfortunately, unless you live in Singapore, the chances of getting your hands on one of the only 32 pairs of Heinekicks that will ever hit the market are slim to none. The kicks will only release in the small island nation, with the first seven pairs expected to land in Q4 2022. The price of Heineken beer sneakers is yet to be announced.
