Vannessa and Angela Simmons are following in their dads footsteps by launching a line of stylish sneakers called Pastry Footwear: The Cake Collection which is in stores now.
The girls say the inspiration for the colorful, athletic shoes was found in their very own kitchen.
Says Vanessa: The sneakers look like our favorite desserts. The Chocolate Mousse sneaker is brown with white highlights and the Strawberry Shortcake shoe is pink and white. They also come with a matching flavored lip gloss.
Angela adds, We like to bake. Thats the Sprinkles sneaker came from. I bake a cake called confetti cake and the sneaker is white with colored dots just like the cake.
The Simmons girls enjoyed being involved in every step of the project and wanted to make their dad proud by working hard.
Says Angela: We did everything from the concept, to designing and naming the shoe, to designing the special cake box they come in.
You can catch more information about the sweet shoe line on the new season of Runs House, which premieres April 9 on MTV.
