More About Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Honey Sneakers:
The Shoe Surgeon crafted 67 pairs of these custom Air Force 1 sneakers, paying careful attention to each element. They transformed the sneaker from athletic wear to luxury by using single stitching (a technique used in Italian craft shoes) throughout, versus double stitching and reduced the number of panels to express the simplicity and craft of Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Honey.
Each material was meticulously chosen, including:
- Vachetta tan leather accents, gold metal eyelets and leather lace with gold metal aglet- In honor of Tennessee Honey
- Black Horween leather- This super premium/craft leather is made with the same care and attention that Jack Daniel's uses to make their whiskey.
- Dark brown distressed leather w/russet undertones- This leather will age with each wear, representative of Jack’s barrel aging process
