Marc Nolan has made a name for itself by creating shoes that mix classic and contemporary, dress and casual. Three Dots and a Dash is a tropical bar and craft cocktail destination. While seemingly of two different worlds, the brands quickly discovered a shared synergy and a desire to bring their collective expertise together, and have launched an exclusive new shoe, co-designed by Marc Nolan’s founder/CEO, Sebastian Malczewski, and Three Dot’s beverage director, Kevin Beary. The shoe will launch online and at Marc Nolan’s West Loop store on June 28th.

“We’re thrilled to collaborate with Kevin and the team at Three Dots, we are all huge fans of their work and the tropical energy they bring daily to the Windy City. It’s been so special getting to bring their noted cocktail program to life through the lens of our signature aesthetic – Marc Nolan Founder/CEO Sebastian Malczewski

“We’re incredibly excited about our upcoming collaboration with Marc Nolan,” said Kevin Beary, Beverage Director at Three Dots and a Dash. “This partnership offers a unique chance to merge the creativity that defines our cocktail program with Marc Nolan’s renowned stylish footwear. We knew it would be the perfect partnership to offer a one-of-a-kind collectible item for loyal Three Dots fans, and we can’t wait for everyone to see what we came up with.”

The pair’s first collaboration represents a vibrant, playful new take on Marc Nolan’s now beloved loafers, available in men’s and women’s sizes. The style extends a sense of playfulness from bold, vibrant pops of color to richly detailed embellishments. Refusing to sacrifice style for comfort, the shoe comes with thick yet lightweight soles and cushioned foam ideally suited for more extended usage.

Each shoe purchase also includes a limited edition shoebox and the recipe for the two brands’ signature Not Too Sweet cocktail (crafted with London Dry Gin, Blanche Armagnac, Blue Curacao, Pineapple Juice, Almond Orgeat, and Lemon Juice). The shoes retail for $130.
