Food-themed sneakers are almost always a hit. Last week, Saucony Originals dropped its avocado toast-inspired sneaker yesterday and today, Ewing Athletics unveiledits pickle-themed shoe in collaboration with Grillo’s Pickles.
The new limited-edition Ewing Sport Lite sneaker dubbed “The Pickle” comes with a plush green suede upper serving as a nod to the fresh dill in each jar of Grillo’s, while green leather accents represent crisp, crunchy cucumbers used to make “the world’s best pickle.”
Additionally, the shoe comes with clear soles and a clear lace lining inspired by Grillo’s farmers market-style jar. White laces inspired by the fresh California garlic, wood cart detailing and Pickle Man logos on the heel complete the collab. The Ewing Athletics x Grillo’s Pickles Ewing Sport Lite “The Pickle” will retail for $140.
Grillo’s Pickles founder, Travis Grillo, began selling two spears for $1 out of a hand-built wooden pickle cart on the streets of Boston 10 years ago after getting denied a job at Nike.
This limited-edition Ewing Sport Lite releases March 4 exclusively on Ewingathletics.com. Meanwhile, Grillo’s Pickles can be found nationwide at markets including Whole Foods, Target, Publix, BJ’s, Stop & Shop, Safeway and many many more.
