In honor of the Boston Marathon taking place next Monday, April 19th, 2010, New Balance put together a limited run of 993’s honoring the event which is now in it’s 113th year.
Available for both men and women, the New Balance 993 “Boston” features colors inspired by those associated with the Boston Marathon with the men’s version sporting a blue and grey suede upper with lime green contrast stitching, and the womens version consisting of the same black and grey base with lake blue stitching. Besides for the color schemes tying the shoes into the event New Balance also included custom logos to represent Boston. NBoston appears across the top of the tongue while “Run” is printed on the heel of the left shoe and “Bos” on the heel of the right.
In total the shoes are limited to 72 pairs – 36 for the men and 36 for the women – with all 72 pairs going on sale tomorrow April 16th, exclusively through The Tannery in Boston.
