Watch out Nike, Saucony is channeling everyone’s inner Bostonian.
Ahead of the 2018 Boston Marathon, the two Boston-based companies have merged their best assets to create a limited-edition shoe that literally Runs on Dunkin’.
The collaboration honors the “symbiotic relationship between running, coffee and donuts,” according to a press release.”
“The Saucony X Dunkin’ Kinvara 9 celebrates the joy, determination and delicious obsession of runners everywhere with a sense of playfulness that’s true to the heart and soul of both brands,” Amanda Reiss, chief marketing officer of Saucony, said in the release
Using the Dunkin’ color scheme, the shoes feature most of the essentials: hot and iced coffee, a pink frosted doughnut, and sprinkles- not to mention that they feature images of Dunkin’ Donuts hot and iced coffee in their insoles
The Saucony X Dunkin’ Kinvara 9 is available to pre-order for both men and women starting Tuesday for $120.
As a native Bostonian, I appreciate these whimsical shoes.
