The millennial obsession with avocados has become a total meme in recent years, and American trainer company Saucony have capitalised on that with their new ‘Avocado toast sneakers’. Sigh.

From the Saucony site:
Holy Saucamole! Celebrate your health kick with the delicacy of the exclusive “Avocado Toast” Shadow 6000. Featuring toast-ed leather, smashed avocado textured suede, red pepper flake collar lining, and the “Saucamole” shout out on the heel. It’s everything you avo-wanted, even if the guac is extra.

Turns out it’s not just Saucony jumping on the avocado bandwagon though, there’s all sorts of avocado-themed footwear being sold online and they’re all completely ridiculous:
At least Saucony kept theirs relatively simple and original with a big avocado toast shoe rather than the avocado frenzy going on with all that other footwear.
Would I wear them? Nope, but I can’t say I hate them tbh. There’s a bunch of shoe trading websites already selling them at marked up prices, so I guess they’re selling pretty well?
