$500 Macallan inspired men’s loafers released

Shoemaker Rob McAllan has partnered with The Macallan to release a limited edition series of men’s loafers in the US, “inspired” by the Scotch whisky brand’s ‘Rare Cask’ expression.

Just 100 pairs have been made, in black and each featuring The Macallan’s famous home, Easter Elchies, stitched in gold thread.

Each pair costs US$500 and only 57 were available at the time of writing.

This is not the first time a whisky brand has tried its hand at fancy footwear. Back in 2015 Johnnie Walker partnered with Oliver Sweeney to create a pair of (hideous) Oxford brogues that could (barely) conceal a miniature bottle in each heel.

Talisker likewise partnered with Oliver Sweeney on a pair of hiking boots, the left shoe having a small pouch to hold a 2oz flask (for whisky presumably).

All proceeds from the sale of the loafers are being donated to the Folded Flag Foundation, a charity that awards educational scholarships to the spouses and children of American servicemen and women killed in action.
