Dunkin' Released Another Saucony Sneaker for the Boston Marathon

Because it's always the right time for donuts. Even during a marathon.
Comments

It's never a bad time for a food-themed sneaker—especially when that food is a donut and when that sneaker is meant for marathon running. A year ago, Saucony launched a Dunkin'-themed sneaker for the 2018 Boston Marathon. And for this year's race, that sneaker is getting another donut-themed take: The two brands released a new spin on the sneaker this week.

The themed detailing is on Saucony's Kinvara 10 sneaker, which is a preferred silhouette for long-distance runners. The knit upper is super lightweight, so it won't dig or pinch your foot while running, and the Formfit footbed ensures maximum response and support while on the move. 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'.

As for the Dunkin' theme, it's a widely known understanding that New England is certifiably obsessed with Dunkin'—its coffee, its donuts, its balanced state of being. 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.

You can try your hand at getting a pair yourself online, but you can be sure they'll sell out quickly. Worry not: there are a few alternative ways to score a pair. In addition to saucony.com and marathonsports.com, the shoes will be available for purchase in-store at Marathon Sports in Boston, Brookline, Cambridge, and Wellesley. They'll also be available April 12 to 14 at the John Hancock Sports & Fitness Expo. Saucony is holding a sweepstakes for those looking to score a free pair. (More info on that here.) And if you've exhausted all of your options—or you just don't feel like rushing—you can be sure to find them on the secondhand market soon enough.
