Feature: Limited Edition Boston Marathon 2016 Shoe Round-Up

It’s that time of year and we are only a few days away from the 2016 Boston Marathon. While that means incredible experiences for some lucky runners out there, it also means we get some killer limited edition redesigns of some flagship shoes from various manufacturers. Here is a quick wrap up of all the shoes for this year!

Adidas

Adidas is all blue and yellow for the Boston Athletic Association version of its Adios Boost 3. Looks like only at Marathon Sports only right now.

Newton

Newton has a pretty nice Boston specific version of its Fate ($139.99, only available at Marathon sports locally until May. The elevation map and skyline views on the upper are sick, bonus points for the Newton city sign in there.

Nike

Nike has three shoes this year, all with blue as their primary, but two skewing to the more patriotic side. Its the LunarEpic Flyknit ($190), the Free RN Distance ($120), and the Zoom Streak LT 3 ($80). They have women’s models as well for two of them, but color palette is very light.
