Heineken Collaborates With ‘The Shoe Surgeon’ to Have You Walking on Beer

You’ve heard of walking on sunshine, but how about walking on beer? it’s much cooler. Obviously.

Heineken has teamed up with Le Pub, BBH, and celebrated sneaker designer Dominic Ciambrone, also known as ‘The Shoe Surgeon’, to drop “Heinekicks”, limited-edition sneakers that will literally have you ‘Walking on Beer’.

The collaboration which pitches the launch of Heineken Silver, taps the talent behind some of the most high-profile custom sneakers worn by people such as LeBron James, DJ Khaled and Drake.

To match Heineken’ Silver’s signature colorway, each pair features a sleek green upper with silver and red accents.


And there is a removable bottle opener built into the tongue–of course!

“Partnering with Heineken for their new beer was a fun challenge,” said Ciambrone.

“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.’’


Seven of the 32 created Heinekicks are slated to drop in Singapore in Q4 2022.

Pairs of Heinekicks will be on display at the Limited Edition Vault at 313@Somerset as part of Project Future organized by Cultural Cartel x Tomorrow Lapse. This special preview will run throughout the six-day event from 10th – 15th August 2022.
