The shoe is also lined with an antimicrobial fabric, which prevents and minimizes smell from all that marathon running—or, you know, casual walking to and from your local Dunkin'.

This sneaker features a printed "Dunkin'" in the chain's signature pink and orange coloring across a white knit upper. The sneaker retails for $120.
