A Saucony spokesman told USA Today only 1,200 pairs were produced. He also said another food-related sneaker will release this August.
The "Avocado Toast" Shadow 6000 features "toast-ed leather, smashed avocado textured suede, red pepper flake collar lining, and the 'Saucamole' shout out on the heel."
Avocado toast, while a perfectly respectable food, became a punchline in 2017. Millionaire property owner Tim Gurner said he that, unlike today's millennials, he wasn't buying expensive food like avocados when he saved for his first home.
This was resoundly mocked for being out of touch and not helpful in a world with a staggering cost of living and stagnant wages.
The avocado toast shoes are not the only food-themed footwear. Eater rounded up "must have" food shoes that represent pizza, waffles and cupcakes. Vans Taco sneakers are great for every day, not just Tuesday.
