The Limited Edition Boston Sneakers are Here
New Balance's glow-in-the-dark sneaker launches today.
Galaxy printed jackets, clothes, and even nails were all¬†the¬†rage last year, but just in time for the Boston Marathon, New Balance¬†released¬†its annual limited¬†edition¬†Boston sneaker‚ÄĒand it is pretty¬†awesome. As if the glow-in-the-dark feature isn’t cool enough, New Balance added Paul Revere on his¬†horse (with his lantern!) and of course, its signature “Boston” right on the shoe. We tested the sneaker and it really does glow-in-the-dark (see photos below).
It’s called the¬†Boston 890V3 and it’s inspired by Paul Revere’s famous ride. The sneaker is¬†ultra-lightweight with neutral cushioning and comes in a midnight blue color. The glow-in-the-dark feature sort of looks like a starry night painting. The 890V3 retails for $114.95 and¬†can be found at two Boston¬†locations:¬†New Balance¬†(583 Boylston Street)¬†and The Tannery (711 Boylston St.). The sneaker is also¬†available¬†at the New¬†Balance¬†Dedham location (218 Legacy Place).
We love that every year there is a limited¬†edition¬†Boston sneaker right around the marathon. What is your favorite?
