Dunkin' x Saucony Kinvara 10

Saucony and Dunkin’, formerly known as Dunkin Donuts, are back with another fashion-meets-food partnership, recently releasing the Kinvara 10 sneaker for their second collaboration in honor of the Boston Marathon. The limited-edition shoe is emblazoned with the coffee company’s colors and symbols, down to the custom donuts-inspired box and sprinkle-garnished marketing. This edition follows up to Dunkin’ and Saucony’s Kinvara 9 sneaker, which released around the same time last year and employed similar festive design elements. Just like the Dunkin’ brand, the footwear is saturated with bright orange and pink details while a white base makes up the upper. Direct food references come into play on the laces, which feature a strawberry-frosted donut medallion, as well as the coffee cup-printed tongue. 

For the performance aspect, the style has been constructed with engineered mesh, an EVERUN topsole, an EVA+ midsole and a FORMFIT contoured footbed that helps provide a more customized fit. A reflective “Boston” imprint is stamped at the heel, finishing off the kicks. The Dunkin’ x Saucony Kinvara 10 is priced at $120 USD for the men’s version, kid’s and women’s are also available and can be purchased now from Saucony’s webstore.
