Avocado on toast, widely regarded as a quintessential millennial brunch staple, has inspired the design of a new pair of trainers.

Yes, you read that correctly. Those looking to add a bit of flavour to their fitness wardrobe can now do so, should they wish to purchase the "Avocado Toast" trainers from American sports brand Saucony.

Retailing at $130 (£97), the recently launched trainers have been manufactured using "toast-ed" leather, "smashed avocado textured" suede, and a collar lining that's been made to look as though it's been speckled with red pepper flakes.

"Holy Saucomole!" the product description reads on the retailer's website. "It's everything you avo-wanted, even if the guac is extra."

While the trainers are advertised as men's footwear, Saucony included a link in the description to a chart that converts men's sizes into women's sizes, so as to avoid any avocado-lovers feeling neglected.

The sports brand also shared a photo of the trainers on Instagram on Tuesday 26 February, much to the excitement and incredulity of its consumers.

"Is this real life?" one person commented in response to the picture.

"Shhhhhhhut up and take my money!" another remarked.

The trainers are currently only on sale on Saucony's US website.

This isn't the first time the American retailer has released special edition food-inspired footwear.

In 2014, the brand released its "Shadow 5000 Burger" trainer, in collaboration with menswear label END.

The tri-coloured shoes, which have now sold out, retailed at £99.
