Saucony teams with Dunkin' for special edition running sneaker in celebration of Boston Marathon.
Saucony and Dunkin Donuts, two Massachusetts-based brands, have collaborated on a special edition running sneaker in celebration of the Boston Marathon which is just three weeks away. That's right, Dunkin Donuts.
The Saucony Kinvara 9 serves as the base for this unexpected sneaker collab, which features a white knitted mesh upper accompanied by a strawberry-frosted donut on the shoe’s heel as well as orange, magenta and chocolate-colored sprinkles. Additionally, the co-branded kicks include a coffee-bean print detail, coffee cup-printed insoles and Dunkin's DD logo on the tongue.
Maybe the coolest part of this Boston-based collab is that the Saucony x Dunkin’ Donuts Kinvara 9 also comes in a custom sneaker box that draws on inspiration from the classic Dunkin’ Donuts box.
“As we celebrate Saucony’s 120th anniversary we’re proud to honor our hometown marathon and Boston’s rich running heritage in partnership with Dunkin’ Donuts, a brand known for ‘keeping America running,’” said Amanda Reiss, chief marketing officer of Saucony, according to Highsnobiety.
“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. And just as the marathon brings out the best in all of us, Saucony continually strives to create the best gear in our world, so that runners everywhere can boldly run theirs.”
The Saucony x Dunkin’ Donuts Kinvara 9, available today, will be limited to less than 2,000 pairs.
