Gushers Brings a Shoe to the ‘Metaverse’ That Can Be Won IRL

The Metaverse is getting everyone involved from all industries — real estate, fashion, gaming, art and even sandwiches now. Now arguably the best lunchbox snack you could ask for, Gushers, has shoes coming to the Metaverse. That isn’t something I don’t think any of us ever expected to say.

The flavor bursting gummy from our childhoods has partnered with Italian design studio, RAL7000STUDIO, to design a high-top shoe that embodies all the unique elements of a Gusher. These are only available at the virtual shopping experience from Complex’s upcoming Complexland, from May 25th through the 27th.

For a chance to own these shoes, participate and complete the Gusher “Sole Quest,” where you can put the kicks on your avatar and unlock the chance to win a pair.

Each pair will feature:

  • A removable and transparent Gushers splash patch that attaches over the laces of the shoe and allows the wearer to make a bold statement that embodies the “Let Your Sole Out” spirit. 
  • A colorful Gushers gem-shaped mold filled with Gushers goo on the lateral side.  
  • A rainbow outsole inspired by Gushers flavors. 
  • The bottom of the Gushers sneaker includes the Gushers logo on the right outsole and the words “Let Your Sole Out” on the left.

Adidas Originals and M&M’S Inspired Forum Lo 84 Sneakers Launch Today

The second drop in a collboration with Adidas Originals and M&M’S are six new M&M’S inspired colorways for the Forum Lo 84 launch today, May 10th.

All of the six (Red, Yellow, Blue, Green, Brown, and Orange) colorways from the classic M&M’S cast is here with their own sneakers. If you didn’t know, yes, you do need to capitalize the colors when referring to M&MS.

Did you know that the colors of the M&M’S were their names?! I mean…I did obviously, but was just checking to see if you did too.

Adidas Originals having candy-based shoes isn’t out of the park for the brand at all, given their history of unique collaborations and partnerships across the industry. These M&M’s-inspired colorways allow for a lot of outfit diversity and with the Lo 84 silhouette being clean and iconic, it’s a shoe that can be used in multiple occasions.

Something like their collaboration with Kerwin Frost, for example, is definitely intended to be statement pieces.

The M&M’s Lo 84’s come in a special edition box, feature premium leather uppers and printed characters in its sock liners.
