    Dunkin' Donuts Is Making Running Shoes — With Sprinkles

    Dunkin' is taking its popular slogan to heart and wants customers to "run" with another Massachusetts brand.

    The Canton-based company has teamed up with Waltham-based Saucony to "keep Bostonians running" with their limited-edition Saucony X Dunkin’ Kinvara 9 sneakers ahead of the Boston Marathon.

    According to Dunkin', the sneakers feature a strawberry-frosted donut surrounded by sprinkles on each heel. The Dunkin’ Donuts logo is on the sneaker's tongue and the brand's "America Runs on Dunkin'" tagline appears on the center heel.

    The Saucony logo also features a coffee bean pattern.
