Prepare to take your love of avocado toast to a whole new level. At least, that’s what shoe brand Saucony is asking you to do with one of their latest styles. These shoes are designed to look like avocado toast — red pepper-flaked lining and all — and they’re retailing for $130.
The sneakers feature toast-colored leather topped with green textured suede for a look inspired by the beloved breakfast, lunch and brunch item — avocado toast. They’re technically men’s shoes. But given that avocado toast is universal, we’d say this design is definitely unisex and can be worn by anyone and everyone, as long as you can get your size.
However, the shoes are definitely a bold fashion statement. Are you ready for it?

As over-the-top as this may seem, we’ve gotta admit that we could get on the avocado toast shoe bandwagon long before we’d pay $870 for “distressed” shoes — which, yes, means the shoes are made to look like they’re dirty.

Is 2019 the year of bizarre sneaker trends? People seem to be puzzled by these sneakers, although there are some definite fans.
On Saucony’s Instagram post about the sneakers, some commenters were clearly excited about the shoes. Others posted some LOLs. One wrote, “😂😭 these are actually real…..”
Whether you’re team avocado toast sneakers or you’re fully against this fashion statement, you’ve got to admit, it’s an interesting time we live in, indeed.
And believe it or not, this isn’t the only way you can express your love of avocado toast through your style.
In fact, you can buy avocado socks to go with your avocado shoes. These retail for $10 at Urban Outfitters:
You can even show off your love of avocados through this fun little printed dress. It’s available at Forever 21 for $24.90:
Meanwhile, tell your brunch-loving friends that this avocado and chili pepper two-piece exists because it’ll be their go-to weekend attire. The set is available at ASOS. The pants are going for $56 and the top retails for $48:
So, it’s possible to eat your avocados and wear them, too — but would you?
