The daughters of Run DMC rapper Rev. Run, will introduce their own entry into the footwear arena, with the launch of Pastry Footwear.
The initial line to debut on March 23rd is The Cake Collection, an offering of colorful, mid-priced athletic-inspired shoes designed for stylish young ladies, carrying tasty names such as Chocolate Mousse (brown with pink highlights), Strawberry Shortcake (pink with white highlights), Red Velvet (red with white highlights) and Sprinkles (white with small multi-colored dots). Each shoe will have a tube of lipgloss attached to it, with its scent/color coordinated to the shoe's theme. The footwear will be packaged in boxes bound with satin ribbon, a la a pastry purchase. They will initially debut via Underground Station stores and website.
