PURCHASE, N.Y., July 11, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Brisk®, the iced tea brand known for its bold flavors, is thrilled to announce that custom sneaker artist Dan "Mache" Gamache, of Mache Custom Kicks, has designed a bold and unique custom sneaker inspired by one of the newest Brisk Iced Tea flavors, Pineapple Passionfruit. Only a few pairs of this limited-edition sneaker will be created and they will not be available for purchase. The only way fans can get their hands on these sneakers is by entering one of two sweepstakes hosted separately by UPROXX and Nice Kicks.
"At Brisk, we are driven by creativity and self-expression and Mache's passion for art and sneakers lives up to that bold and unique attitude," said Jayanthi Raja Segaran, Director of Marketing for Brisk Iced Tea. "We're excited to showcase Mache's creative process and these custom kick designs with our fans."
Mache has been designing and customizing sneakers since 2004. He followed his passion and worked for years to perfect his craft, emerging as a world-renowned sneaker artist designing custom shoes for celebrities, musicians and professional athletes, among others. His story and creativity inspired Brisk to bring the new Pineapple Passionfruit flavor to life through a unique, creative, and limited-edition sneaker design.
Mache created these custom sneakers inspired by John Juan, the Brisk character featured on the Pineapple Passionfruit flavor packaging. The duo teamed up to bring fans a making-of video detailing the creative process behind these limited-edition sneakers.
