Oliver Sweeney x Talisker ‘Made By The Sea’ Boots

Hiking is, of course, a pretty rewarding experience but can be quite testing as well weather-wise depending on the time of year that you do it and having a hit of the strong stuff i.e. whisky is always a good idea to get you over the hump whenever the weather becomes too boisterous and that’s why these awesome looking Oliver Sweeney x Talisker ‘Made By The Sea’ Boots are definitely going to appeal to those outdoor enthusiasts with a love of spirits.

This collaboration between British fashion house Oliver Sweeney and Scottish whisky brand, Talisker, has got all the makings of a classic and, as a limited edition offering, almost certainly won’t be sticking around on the shelves for long particularly when you consider the unparalleled aesthetic appeal and out and out functionality that they boast. The Oliver Sweeney x Talisker Made By The Sea Boots really are the drinker’s boot.

By Land And By Sea

The Oliver Sweeney x Talisker Made By The Sea Boots are designed with those with an adventurous spirit in mind and these wonderfully hand-crafted boots take their design inspiration from the wild storm-tossed seas and unforgiving terrains of the Isle of Skye where the Talisker distillery is found. These eye-catching boots are presented alongside an engraved solid oak box with the signature 70cl bottle of TALISKER’s 10-year-old whisky included as well so if you love to get out into nature and enjoy a nip of whisky whilst you’re doing it, look no further.

When hiking, you may well need a little hit of whisky to warm the cockles and there is no better means of porting said whisky about than with these supremely well crafted boots from Oliver Sweeney. They are made from the best Italian leather which has been burnished by hand in the family owned factories of Le Marche. The Oliver Sweeney x Talisker Made By The Sea Boots boasts a cleverly positioned pocket to hold the 2oz etched stainless steel hipflask – perfect for those brief moments of respite from any unrelenting conditions.

Delivering an eye-catching and unexpected twist, the real pièce de résistance of this ace looking footwear is the St. Moritz sole which features a section of the cask which has been used in the ageing of the 10-year-old Talisker whisky. This provides an impeccably stylish and unique finishing touch to these boots that lovers of all things whisky are sure to appreciate and it’s the icing on the cake for us here at Coolector HQ.
