A few weeks back, we spent a few days in Louisville, Kentucky, with the good folks over at Bulleit Bourbon. During our adventures through their distillery and getting a look at their process, we heard rumblings of a special sneaker on the horizon. While they are known for crafting some of the best bourbons in the game, Bulliet is also known for doing things a little differently. Today the brand returns to unveil a unique 3D-Printed Sneakers project.
As part of Bulleit’s Frontier Works project, the sneakers took 200 hours to develop. The sneakers were designed alongside Dallas-based artist Kyle Steed. A machine created the structure of the shoe. Each pair was hand-painted with a design meant to pay homage to the idea of community, togetherness, and the human experience. The sneakers are the latest installment of the Frontier Works project. Previously Bulleit created a 3D-printed fully-featured bar. Sadly, there are no plans for these sneakers to see a wide release.
However, a select few are on sale right now for $250 apiece via Sneaker Politics. Take a closer look at the 3D-Printed Sneakers in the images below and learn more from Bulleit right now. Keep it locked with The Culture Curators for more creative sneakers coming very soon.
