Would You Wear A Supra Sneaker With Corona Branding On It?
We don’t know about you, but we packed up our cases of Corona and put them at the back of our refrigerators a loooooong time ago. Coronas are more of a summer drink to us. We’re not saying that we’d turn one down if someone bought it for us—hint, hint—but we don’t tend to keep them on hand during the summer months.
We can’t say the same for Supra. The sneaker company recently jumped into bed with Corona to create the Corona x Supra Cuttler—a white canvas sneaker that features a bunch of Corona branding on the tongue, the back of the sole, and, most prominently, on the bottom of the shoe. They unveiled it the other night at an event at LIV in Miami that featured performances by Santigold and Wale.
We’re not 100 percent sure what to make of this sneaker. It’s pretty clean and would make for a nice summer shoe. But, beer branding on sneakers always feels a little bit tacky to us. Like, are you really impressing people by wearing a limited-edition sneaker with the name of a beer on it? It seems like you should be able to buy a pair of these at a gift shop when you go on vacation. At any rate, you won’t really have to worry about what people might think if you wear these, because you’re probably not going to get your hands on these. They’re not going to be put on sale for the public and only 200 pairs are in existence. But, if they were available, would you wear ‘em? Or, would you leave ‘em on ice where a Corona deserves to be?
