You Can Own Nantucket-Themed Sneakers
With Marathon Monday just less than three weeks away, Boston-area footwear companies are rolling out special-edition shoes en masse. (Exhibits A and B: Saucony and New Balance.) Now, even Seattle-based Brooks Running wants to show its love for New England.
The running company’s latest release, the Adrenaline GTS 16, is an unapologetically preppy, Nantucket-themed sneaker, complete with lobsters, whales, anchors, and sailboats. They are eye-catching, to put it delicately.
Underneath the madras pattern, the shoes have adaptive foot cushioning, a sock-like fit, and extra support and stability.
They can be preordered now through Marathon Sports, and will be officially released April 1. Once they hit the market, you can purchase them for $130 from Brooks, at specialty stores, or at Brooks’ booth at the Boston Marathon expo.
