Later this month, the 2013 Boston Marathon will be taking place, as New Balance has coincidingly crafted a thematic pair of its 990 model for the heralded race. Done up in suede, leather and mesh, the makeup sports a purple look, complemented with both red and grey accents. The sneaker is unmistakably branded in various spots throughout, as marathon tagging can be seen on the lace loop and Paul Revere markings towards the heel — you know, the guy who warned that the British were coming? Nonetheless, you can find the purple pair available now through select outlets such as Concepts. Retail is $160.
