Running just got a whole lot sweeter, thanks to a collaboration between Dunkin’ Donuts and Saucony. Ahead of the 2018 Boston Marathon, the two Boston-based companies have merged their best assets – the Kinvara 9 from Saucony and sprinkles from Dunkin’ – to create a limited-edition shoe that Runs on Dunkin’.
Using the Dunkin’ brand’s white, orange, and pink colors, the Saucony x Dunkin’ Donuts Kinvara 9 is decorated with sprinkles, a frosted donut, coffee beans, and a “Boston” stamp. The insoles are decorated with Dunkin’s beloved hot and iced coffees, and the shoes come with three sets of laces for runners to customize their Dunkin’ aesthetic. Even the box gets in on the fun, copying the brand’s signature donut box – though it should be noted that opening the box releases a new-shoe smell, not donuts and coffee.
To get your hands on these sweet treats, runners can pre-order the Saucony x Dunkin’ Donuts Kinvara 9 at Saucony.com for $120. Shoes will ship on April 3.
