Fruit shoes -- A pair a day keeps the winter blues away

December 29, 2008 |  4:17 pm

Sneakers with fruit graphics are looking sweet for Spring. And what better way to kick winter aside than with colorful shoes printed with cheery produce. Vans and Nike are both doing fruit shoes. Nike has a women’s Dunk High in an all-over cherry print that I first saw on Kanye West’s blog. And Vans is doing a collection of fruit shoes including watermelons, oranges and green apples. The watermelon shoes actually look like juicy little wedges of watermelon, with a bright green sole and pink canvas with black seeds.

If you can’t wait until Spring deliveries, Opening Ceremony still has some of those cute Liberty print Nike Dunks at its store on La Cienega. They’re white with red cherries and a red swoosh and on sale now for $50 (originally $120.)

Opening Ceremony. 451 N. La Cienega Blvd., West Hollywood, CA 90048. (310) 652-1120.
