St. Patrick's Day Hits the Sneakers Market - Six Stylin' Shoes for the Drinking Holiday

Normally considered a "small" holiday by every brand and company, besides Bud Light, Guiness and every other beer producer that turns their infamous drink green for 24 hours, it appears St. Patrick’s Day may be beginning to gather more of a marketing presense.

Especially in the shoe market. Here's what some are doing to make shoes go Irish:

1. Puma - Show off your Glitter!

The Puma Sky 2 sneakers are green with a ton of gold accents, including a large gold swoosh, sparkly laces, and very detailed glittering patterns. Even the Puma cougar logo is gold.

But the St. Patrick's Day shoe would not be complete, without the back of the shoe featuring a shamrock and across the Velcro tongue closure is a lucky pot of gold.

2. Reebok - Celebrate the Irish!

This specially designed pair of Reebok's reinterprets the colors of the Irish flag in neons. The brightly colored orange and green side-stripes, heel logo reading "Reebok", and tongue graphic of a leprechaun are all 3M reflective. In addition to the the leprechaun, the lining also features a repeat pattern that is very fitting for the holiday - beer mugs!

How about this festive pair of women's running shoes? The Nike Free 5.0 are bright green with clover markings on the heel and by the toe is one large four leaf clover.

Talk about ulgy shoes

Who would buy these shoes for just one freakin' day of the year? Besides, they're all ulgy, the only slight exceptable one is the Airbox 90 and even it could do without those shamrocks/clovers.

Plus, who would even think of wearing these shoes, they're seriously tacky.
