Pastries for Your Feet...

Rev Run's daughters Angela and Vanessa Simmons are set to release their new line of sneakers geared toward young women soon. The line is called the Pastry Footwear Cake Collection and it will feature shoes with names like Strawberry Shortcake and Chocolate Mousse. The name of the line is cute and the idea behind is cool too but I seriously doubt that I'll be rocking any of it. The style is a little too young for me. Anyway, I love seeing young Black women doing their thing, so I wish them much success. You can read more about the line under the cut. Click the promotional picture below to see it in full...

New York, NY (AHN) - Run DMC's daughters are introducing a new line of footwear inspired by their favorite pastries dubbed the Pastry Footwear Cake Collection.

Cake flavours chocolate mousse, strawberry shortcake, red velvet and sprinkles are the inspiration for the four shoe designs of the same names.

The girls, Vanessa and Angela Simmons, are both students and aspiring fashion career women and are currently in the middle of attaining degrees in business and fashion respectively.

They've grown up close to the fashion world, being the nieces of Phat Farm and Baby Phat clothiers Russell Simmons and ex-wife Kimora Lee.

The shoes will be decked out in fun colors inspired by their cake namesakes and come with a matching attached lip gloss.

A behind-the-scenes look at launching the footwear will be aired on MTV during the next season of "Run's House," featuring Run DMC and his family.
