The Ruffles® Armored Ridge Tops are an original sneaker from the potato chip purveyor and famed customizer that’s designed to have a medieval look. Packaged in a bold white and blue box with a gothic-inspired font, these high-top sneakers are constructed from a gray two-toned textured leather. A futuristic diagram on the inside of the box shows the panels that make up the Ruffles® Armored Ridge Tops as well as the additional elements that wearers can modify onto the shoe.

Inspired by a knight’s shield, the sneaker comes with a unique ridge lace cover that provides extra protection while wearing the shoe. Additional elements like a buckled strap with a “R” logo provide a hint of Ruffles® branding for those who want to represent their favorite snack. Other medieval elements of the shoe include a treatment on the textured leather that looks like chain mail and metallic rivets to complete the shiny, armored look. Featured in a commercial from Ruffles® titled “Ruffles Without Ridges,” the Ruffles® Armored Ridge Tops are available exclusively through a giveaway, which is open until June 25.

Check out the Ruffles® Armored Ridge Tops in the unboxing video above before heading to the brand’s website to enter the giveaway. By entering the giveaway, fans are also able to score other prizes from Ruffles® including merchandise, snacks and more.
