Ewing Athletics breaks out the Ewing Sport Lite for their collaboration with Grillo’s Pickles. Founder Travis Grillo started selling two pickles spears in the streets of Boston for $1 out of the wooden cart that he made after missing out on a career as a sneaker designer at Nike.
Now the duo is collaborating on the first-ever pickled inspired sneaker that’s been dubbed “The Pickle.”
The clear soles are representative of the pickle jars that are displayed at farmer’s markets, which are filled with fresh pickles, while the green leather and suede accents are figurative of the fresh dill and the cucumbers that can be made out of each spear. Additionally, the white laces are a nod to the fresh California garlic seen in each jar, as the tongues sport the text, “FRESH GRILLOS.”
The Grillo’s Pickles x Ewing Sport Lite “The Pickle” is set to launch exclusively at Ewing Athletics on March 4.
