Food and beverage inspired sneakers just won't quit. Adidas and Coca-Cola have unveiled a revamped version of their special edition shoe, the Climacool 1, which comes in Coca-Cola red, emblazoned with the beverage company's classic script logo on the heel and bearing the iconic three stripes on the side, Footwear News reports.

The flashy red and gold sneaker was first introduced in 2002 for the World Cup; according to a rep for Coca-Cola, it was one of Adidas' "most sought-after shoes ever introduced." The brand is once again releasing the shoes in conjunction with a major sporting event — the UEFA Euro 2016 tournament., which starts June 10.

Prefer your sneakers with less sugar? Said shoes also come in silver Diet Coke and black Coke Zero versions, Hypebeast notes. Those colorways are slated to launch later this summer.

Shoes imitating food are popping up all over the place lately. Nike has a number of food-related shoe projects in the works, including one with Krispy Kreme involving sneakers in donut boxes, as well as chicken and waffles-inspired shoes and coffee-inspired shoes. Let's not forget the pizza-covered shoes, either.
