Until last week Kashi was that reassuringly crunchy and wholesome goodness we ate every morning with our soymilk. Our boy Harry at Pegleg did some research in Vegas, though, and uncovered a weird, bedazzled parallel universe where Kashi is a line of jeweled sneakers for streetwalking vegans. Signature Kashi shoes? The Vegetation Force and the Bean Bankroll. Turns out Alan Kashi is a hip hop jeweler turned sneaker maven (hence the penchant for glittery kicks) and the line launched last year. Is shoe Kashi Darth to cereal Kashi's Luke? Who knows? In any case, the Kashi shoe crew promised allegiance to a higher veggie cause and that no animals were harmed in the making of their kicks. Unfortunately, the glitter tastes like shit. More pics after the jump.
