You might have fallen for Grillo’s Pickles over the years, but what if we told you that you no longer need to keep your addiction to yourself? Yes, it could be time to show the whole world how much you love pickles thanks to these matching sneakers.
Spreading The Love
It seems as though pickles have become one of the latest things to take over the world. From pickle juice to pickle popsicles and everything in between – where there ever be an end to one of the greatest foods on the planet? We sure hope not. Grillo’s Pickles is one of the most popular brands in the world, but we need more. No longer is crunching into one of the pickles enough. No, we need a way to show the world that we have fallen for the food head over heels – literally.
Thankfully, Travis Grillo – the man behind the pickles – had an idea to push his plan to the limit. All he needed to do was create a sneaker that pickle-lovers from across the world could wear with pride. It turns out that Travis has always had a passion for shoes as he was once rejected for a job with Nike. However, nothing was going to stop him from reaching his dreams. Years in the pickle business later, and Travis could finally combine his two passions in life. However, you best be quick as the sneakers are only available for a limited time.
It looks as though plenty of thought has gone into the sneaker design. Travis states the clear soles are to represent the jar of pickles that come filled with their seven signature ingredients. From there, the green suede stands for organic dill while the green leather steps in to take the place of the crunchy cucumbers used in every jar. The white laces are the garlic before the whole thing is finished with Sam the Pickle Man on the back of the sneaker and a photo of the company’s original pickle cart on the sole of the shoe. Not one part of this sneaker has been overlooked.
We might need to move quickly to grab these sneakers as they launched on March 4, and the $140-a-pair will only be available for a limited time. Pickle-lovers, unite!
