This spring, Wednesday Whiskey, the young label in men’s shoes by the Dutch entrepreneur Marijn Verschure, is launching a very special project. Several artists, from different origines, were invited to apply their significant signature on a pair of Wednesday Whiskey shoes. As a result the eye-catching works of art will be on display in a small exhibition, called Wednesday Whiskey x The Artists at the Dutch Leather and Shoe Museum in Waalwijk, the Netherlands.

Marijn Verschure, who is both founder and owner of Wednesday Whiskey, came up with the idea for the art project together with his friend Pablo Lücker during an international fair.

Besides Lücker, he found the American graffiti artist Kool Koor, the Dutch cartoonist Luc Verschuuren and several others, willing to make a contribution to this project. After the exhibition in the Dutch Leather and Shoe Museum, the project will be shown on several fairs and events as well.
