There's a common misconception that you need to be Irish to celebrate St. Patrick's Day. Throw that out the window, please. Anyone can enjoy a few frosty beers and corned beef on March 17, or whatever day their local town or city celebrates this momentous holiday.

People don't have to live in Boston to get down on St. Patrick's Day, either. But if they do, New Balance created possibly the most Boston sneaker ever. For this year's festivities, New Balance took a Made in USA 990, dipped it in green suede, put a shamrock on the heel, and re-used the design details from last year's Boston Marathon 990.

To further prove that you don't need to live in Boston or be Irish to get these: They're available right now from New Jersey's Packer Shoes for $180. Click here to check them out.
