There are people who love doughnuts and then there are those who really love doughnuts. You know you’re in the latter group if you can’t start your day without one, if coffee just isn’t the same unless it’s served with one and if the words “Dunkin’ Donuts sneakers” have you reaching for your credit card.
Taking the catchphrase “American runs on Dunkin”’ to the extreme, Dunkin’ Donuts has teamed up for the second time with Saucony for the X Dunkin’ Kinvara 10 sneaker. Not only do the shoes literally say “Dunkin’ Donuts,” they also feature a strawberry-frosted doughnut medallion on the laces, a coffee cup-covered tongue and three sets of laces: white, orange and pink.
Because the shoes are in celebration of this year’s Boston Marathon, they also say “Boston” on the heel. Plus (because, why not), the shoes come in a custom doughnut-inspired box.
If you’ll be buying the shoes for actual running — not just because they’re clearly amazing — you’ll want to know they have a 4mm heel-to-toe offset, which, according to Saucony’s website, “delivers a more natural ride, letting your feet and body do more work while relying less on the shoes’ cushioning and stability features.” They also feature memory foam technology for all-day comfort.
Unfortunately, they have proven to be pretty popular and men’s and women’s sizes are already sold out on Saucony’s website, but children’s sizes are still available. At the time of this story, Marathon Sports still had some men’s and women’s left on their website, and you may be able to find some in-store.
If you can’t get your hands on a pair, you can instead just enter to win them in any size. Now through April 16, just head to Saucony’s website to enter up to five times, once per day. There will be three winners, but odds of winning depend on how many people enter the contest, of course.
You can also sign up for Saucony’s email list to be notified when the shoes are back in stock on their website.
Will you be running out for a new pair of shoes, or just to the nearest doughnut shop?
