Sour Patch Kids Sneakers Are Perfect For Those Obsessed With The Candy

Sour Patch Kids has been dropping collabs all over the place recently, ranging from cereals to ice cream. Their latest, however, isn’t actually a food, but a new basketball shoe collab between the candy, Under Armour, and basketball superstar Steph Curry.

The new limited-edition Curry 7 Sour Patch Kids collection just recently dropped in China. Marked with Sour Patch Kids all over the inside of the shoe, the outside comes in two colorways: peach and lime. Sour Patch Kids can also be found on the heel backing and pull tab of the shoe.

Sadly, purchasing these sneakers does not get you a free bag of Sour Patch Kids on the side, but there’s some unique tissue paper featuring the sweets and Steph’s own logo on the inside. Could make for some unique wrapping paper, perhaps?

If you want to snag a pair for your collection, these will drop on Under Armour’s website, in their stores, and at other select retailers nationwide on November 29th. Each pair will cost $140.

The Halal Guys Drop A Shoe Collab Based On Their Popular Sauces

Sneakerheads and hardcore The Halal Guys fans alike will be fighting to get their hands on pairs of the street food icon’s newest collab.

A joint project between Clarks, NYC boutique Extra Butter, and The Halal Guys, the above shoes bring as much heat as a packet of the chain’s legendary red sauce. It’s fitting, then, that the two colorways for the shoes are based on the spicy and white sauces that grace the platters of meat and rice the New York legend is heralded for.

These “Halalabees” were debuted by Extra Butter at ComplexCon 2018 and commemorate the 30-year history of the street cart classic. Extra Butter designed them with premium suede uppers, classic crepe outsoles, a custom branded leather hangtag and veg-tan leather insoles.

If you want to cop the “Halalabees,” Extra Butter will debut them in their East Manhattan flagship store starting on November 9th, but those not in the area will be able to score them via online. Only 200 pairs of each colorway are available, though, making these $180 kicks a hyper-limited drop that you’ll want to snag faster than an Uncle Paulie’s hat.

These New Exclusive Sneakers Are Perfect For The Sushi Obsessed

Rap legend Bun B is a man of many interests. From being a hip-hop legend and copping the freshest sneakers to his hometown of Houston and delicious food, he really does it all. So, it’s no surprise that he’s combined his loves for his latest collabo — sushi-inspired sneakers.

Bun and his partner Premium Pete, the creators of the food community YouGottaEatThis.com, have teamed with Ewing Athletics to create the EWING 33 HI x YouGottaEatThis! (Sushi).

The shoes’ upper sports a salmon suede along with an embossed You Gotta Eat This logo tongue. The strap tab is inspired by wooden chopsticks while the green wasabi sock liner sits on a white rice inspired outsole.

The kicks, priced at $140, were launched in limited release this past Sunday (Dec. 2) at Houston’s Htown Sneaker Summit. Next month, the sneakers will be released via select stores or online at ewingathletics.com.

Starbucks And Nike Collaborate To Create A Beautiful Pair Of Sneakers

Nike and Starbucks, two of the biggest brands in the world (ranking in at 17 and 67, respectively), have teamed up in order to bring us the next pair of shoes we don’t need but dammit we want.

This isn’t the first time two giants from the food and fashion industry have collaborated, and certainly won’t be the last.

The Nike SB Dunk Low Premium Starbucks edition shoes have a brown suede-looking canvas with subtle, streaky swirls of khaki, made to mimic both the steam coming off of a fresh cup of coffee and the wrinkly, rich brown tone of a handful of coffee beans. The Nike Swoosh is painted in classic white with the standard Starbucks green outline, along with the heel, tongue and base of the shoes.

The shoes are available now for a limited time in select Nike retailers. These shoes, as do many of the shoes in the Nike SB Premium line, retail at $100. Personally, I think the shoes look dope as hell, and I would buy them for the clean-looking color scheme alone. Of course, I would try to get away with calling them the Andes Mints Edition or something, because “Starbucks shoes” is just too much.
