Don't feed the hypebeast

As far as the fashion world is concerned, pizza isn't going anywhere. Nike is just the latest brand to get in on the tasty trend with a new design that's fresh out of the oven. We got to admit, the kicks sort of remind us of the pair from the Vans Late Night collection, but this design is solely dedicated to everyone's favorite meat topping: pepperoni. A collaboration between Skate Mental and Nike SB Janoski, the "Pepperoni Pizza" sneakers are totally decked out like a piping hot slice of 'za. The shoes are even finished with a marinara red lining.
Earlier this year, Nike released the "Waffle Dunk" and the "Cold Pizza Dunk" so dabbling in the food lane isn't new territory for the brand. Still no word on the release date, but we'll let you know as soon as these kicks are available on the market. Have your pizza and eat it too! We can't wait to stock up on these.
UPDATE 6/14/2016, 1:35 PM: Nike will release the sneakers on June 17th. You can shop them at Nike.com or through Nike SB accounts.
