Southern California’s prominent chain does more than sling burgers, they also sell clothing. In-N-Out’s t-shirts and hoodies are favorites, but might be swept aside with the company’s new laceless slip-on sneakers. In-N-Out announced the new Drink Cup shoes via Instagram two days ago, which is covered in the company’s iconic drink cup design. According to the Southern California-based company, these were not made for Valentine’s Day, but is part of an increased roll-out of all In-N-Out gear.
Drink Cup shoes are $39.95 for children and $64.95 for grown-ups. Unfortunately, these popular items sold out within one day. But In-N-Out hopes to have them back in stock by May.
