Saucony® and Dunkin' Celebrate Boston 2019 with Second Collaboration Running Shoe
Two iconic Boston-based brands team up once again to celebrate hometown marathon with new limited-edition Saucony x Dunkin’ Kinvara 10
March 22, 2019 // Franchising.com // WALTHAM, MA and CANTON, MA - After their first sneaker collaboration sold out in record time last spring, Saucony runners and Dunkin’ lovers alike have been craving a bold and fresh refill. This year, Boston-based brands Saucony and Dunkin’ are at it again, teaming up to release an all-new collaboration for Boston’s biggest race, the Saucony x Dunkin’ Kinvara 10.
This limited-edition shoe takes the long-distance cult favorite Kinvara 10 silhouette with its innovative EVERUN™ cushioning, and updates it with a bold graphic inspired by Dunkin’s bright new product packaging introduced earlier this year as part of the company’s recent rebranding. The design also features strawberry-frosted donut medallions, Dunkin’ coffee cups and the word “Boston” emblazoned on a reflective strip - all packaged in a custom shoebox resembling Dunkin’s iconic donut box.
The Saucony x Dunkin’ Kinvara 10 will be exclusively available beginning today, March 21 at saucony.com, and at the following Marathon Sports stores: Boston, Brookline, Cambridge, Wellesley and marathonsports.com at $120. The sneaker will be produced in men’s sizes 7-13, 14 and 15, and women’s sizes 5-12. And, for this year, Dunkin’ and Saucony have some sweet news for your favorite munchkins, as a kids’ edition will also be available in Big Kids’ sizes 10.5 - 6 at $65 (suggested retail) beginning today on saucony.com.
For marathon runners, both the adult and kids’ editions will be available at the John Hancock Sports & Fitness Expo at the John B. Hynes Veterans Memorial Convention Center at 900 Boylston Street, Boston, April 12 - April 14.
“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,” said 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.”
