The Boston Marathon Runs on Dunkin’

There are few things as quintessentially Boston as the Boston Marathon and grabbing a Dunkin’ Donuts iced coffee and Boston Kreme donut, even in the dead of winter. So, it only makes sense that some genius marketer dreamed up a very Boston mashup.
Just in time for the 2018 Boston Marathon, Waltham-based Saucony introduced a limited-edition collaboration with Dunkin’ Donuts to celebrate the “symbiotic relationship between running, coffee and donuts.” (I’m a little skeptical about this supposed relationship – but what do I know? I don’t run unless I’m about to miss the T.)
The Saucony X Dunkin’ Kinvara 9 sneakers come in a box reminiscent of the box you usually get your Dunkin’ dozen in, and the shoes themselves feature a strawberry frosted donut and plenty of sprinkles in Dunks’ classic orange and magenta hues. Pictured on the inner soles are iced and hot coffees, and you can customize the sneaks with laces (black, orange and magenta laces come with the shoes).
If you’re ready to prove that America literally runs on Dunkin’, donut wait and order your sweet sneaks now, so they’ll get here in time for you to run the 26.2 miles on Patriots’ Day. And if you’re a non-runner like me, you can just wear them on your daily Dunkin’ runs as you refuel on caffeine and sugar.
