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!
3. Adidas - Get Lucky with the Leprechaun!
Check out this green and white, leprechaun decorated Adidas high-top especially made for St. Patrick's Day. You can also get the matching Adidas t-shirt to celebrate the holiday!
4. Nike - Lucky Four Leaf Clover
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.
5. Nike Air - Show Off Your Shamrock
This year, Nike celebrates St. Patrick’s Day with this Women’s Nike Air Stab shoe. The shoe features green and gold as the main colors, with four leaf clovers printed on the sides of the shoe.
Another Nike Air shoe created to celebrate the holiday in style is the Airbox 90.
