"But First, Coffee." While this sounds like something that should be on a T-shirt (in that really cute, Pinterest-y font), it just so happens to be the motto of the artisan coffee company Alfred (there are currently locations in Los Angeles, Austin, Osaka, Shinjuku, and Kuwait City). And now you can find it stamped on one of Sorel’s most popular and supportive sneaker styles. That's right, it's the Alfred x Sorel collab you never knew you needed (but now must have, natch).

Sorel may be known for their comfy boots, but their sneakers are just as easy and feel-good on your feet. Case in point: the Kinetic Breakthru Tech Lace shoes ($130). These kicks have been spotted everywhere—including on Euphoria star Sydney Sweeney— thanks to their super cushioned midsoles and eco-friendly design. But recently, these babies just got a fun makeover.

If you love a good caffeinated drink, (and heck, don’t we all?) you're in for a real treat. The celeb and podiatrist-loved retailer just partnered with Alfred coffee house to create two new limited edition styles of the Kinetic Breakthru Tech Lace sneakers. The two speciality kicks launched yesterday and are based on Alfred's Iced Vanilla Latte and the Iced Matcha Latte drinks that have taken over Los Angeles and beyond. 

The shoes still have the same design, so your feet will feel just as comfortable walking around in them. For one, the midsole is super responsive to help propel your feet forward with each step. Also, the EVA footbed and chunky outsole provide extra cushioning and protection from high impact as you walk. And if you're looking for a more sustainable option to add to your closet, you're in the clear here as well (the upper contains eco-friendly materials while the midsole is made with 10 percent Bloom foam, an "algae-biomass-containing material" that is cushiony).

But what really sets these sneaks apart? The unique colors, thanks to the unique Alfred design inspo. If you prefer something a bit more neutral and that you can pair with your everyday fits, the Iced Coffee style features a lighter bisque and cinnamon highlights. The Iced Matcha Latte shoe has green accents all over for a punchier look. And though it's not clear how long this collab will last, it's best to scoop them up while they're still in stock. At least, that's what we're playing on doing.
