These Colorful 3D-Printed Sneakers Were Made By Bulleit Bourbon

Generally, when we think of stylish sneakers, names like Nike, Adidas, Converse, PF Flyers, Vans, and New Balance come to mind. What definitely never crosses into our thoughts, however, is a bourbon maker. Well, it looks like that might be about to change because the folks at Bulleit Bourbon have just unveiled a unique 3d-printed footwear project.

A part of Bulleit’s Frontier Works project — which previously included the creation of a 3D-printed fully-featured bar — these sneakers took a whopping 200 hours to develop and were designed alongside Dallas-based artist Kyle Steed. And while the structure of the shoe was created by a machine, each pair is actually hand-painted with a design meant to pay homage to the idea of community, togetherness, and the human experience. Unfortunately, there aren’t plans for these sneakers to see a wide release — though a select few are on sale right now for $250 apiece on online retailer Sneaker Politics.
