Performing a “shoey” in Australia is known as a rite of passage for American artists.

The rapper from Texas is practically obsessed with beer, naming his ultra-popular 2018 album beerbongs and bentleys. He’s still working off the hype from that project and in true Aussie fashion, he stepped on stage and drank straight from a fan’s sneaker. He seemed reluctant to do a “shoey” but after it was all said and done, he turned out kind of enjoying himself, saying that the shoe will now be uncomfortable but that he’s glad to have taken part in the odd tradition.
What’s going on in Australia, man? Why are y’all drinking out of shoes?
