NEW ORLEANS– Local French Quarter shoe business, Sneaker Politics have made some pretty sweet shoes! They are Cafe Du Monde inspired beignet “Saucony Shadow 5000 Beignet/Powdered Sugar” sneakers.
Sneaker Politics teamed up with the popular beignet shop, Cafe Du Monde to create these one-of-a-kind sneakers that are $120, and available in men sizes between 4-14.
These sneakers look like beignets with tan coloring and white to represent the powdered sugar.
They also have the iconic green and white coloring of the world-famous Cafe Du Monde awnings on them too.
Blaine McGowan is a product designer with Sneaker Politics and created the shoe with Saucony and Cafe Du Monde.
The shoes will be available at a special launch party for the sneakers on Saturday June 22nd at 11:30 a.m.
Lines are expected to begin forming around 9:00 a.m. so get there early. Cafe Du Monde will be on-hand to give out beignets and Cafe Au Lait to the guests at this launch party.
