Oliver Sweeney x Talisker Hiking Boots

Just because a collaboration isn’t necessarily intuitive doesn’t mean it won’t be great. Case in point, the Oliver Sweeney x Talisker Boots. The single malt Scotch whisky distillery has teamed up with the beloved shoe maker to develop a pair of flask-sporting hikers. And, while these may come up off as a bit kitsch at first glance, a closer look will reveal that they’re too well made to be put in that category.

Each boot’s upper is made from high quality Italian leather while the included hand etched 2-ounce hip flask is made from sterling silver. To add a bit more flare, the heel of the boot features a wooden section sourced from the same cask used to age the 10-year Talisker included in the oak box set. Should you get lost after enjoying too much of that whiskey, the right boot sports a micro compass to help you navigate your way back home. For all intents and purposes, making a boot with a flask on it is a silly idea. But, seeing that Oliver Sweeney did such a good job putting together this collaboration with Talisker whiskey, we’re definitely not going to knock them for it.
