America can now actually run on Dunkin' thanks to a delicious-looking collaboration with sneaker maker Saucony.
The two Boston-based brands have teamed up to create the Saucony x Dunkin' Kinvara 10 shoe, in time for next month's Boston Marathon.
The limited-edition sneaker updates the Kinvara 10 silhouette with a graphic inspired by Dunkin's new product packaging. It features strawberry-frosted donut medallions, a Dunkin' coffee cup on the tongue, and the word "Boston" emblazoned on a reflective strip. Oh, and they come in a custom shoebox resembling Dunkin's donut box.
"Marathons bring out the best of the human spirit, and the collective good that surrounds our hometown race is remarkable, inspirational and contagious," said Don Lane, chief marketing officer of Saucony. "We're proud to partner with fellow Boston brand-icon Dunkin' in the creation of the Saucony x Dunkin' Kinvara 10, delivering even more goodness to our running community."
"The new Saucony x Dunkin' Kinvara 10 represents the speed for which our brand is recognized and the deep Boston heritage and support for marathoners that we share with Saucony," added Justin Unger, director of strategic partnerships at Dunkin' Brands. "We are proud to once again collaborate with Saucony to celebrate the love of Dunkin' and literally keep people running throughout marathon season and all year-round."
The new sneaker is available for $120 at saucony.com and at Marathon Sports stores in Boston, Brookline, Cambridge and Wellesley, and marathonsports.com. It comes in men's sizes 7-15, women's sizes 5-12 and Big Kids sizes 10.5-6. (The kids' shoes are at $65.)
This is actually the second Saucony-Dunkin' collaboration. The first one, in 2018, was a Dunkin'-branded Kinvara 9 featuring sprinkles falling off of the strawberry donut on the heel.
