The MINI Lifestyle Collection have introduced new sneakers in a Union Jack style. The unique MINI Union Jack sneakers were first unveiled in May 2011, at SNEAKERNESS in Cologne, Europe's biggest sneaker convention.
The MINI Union Jack Sneakers are hi-tops and are available in classic blue, with soles and laces in contrastring white. Fashionable Union Jack details add attractive highlights, with the flag printed on the heel cap and along the shoelace eyelets. The Union Jack profile at the front and back of the sole ensures that these sneakers will leave behind a distinctly British footprint: MINI was here!
The upper material is water weather-repellent canvas, guaranteeing dry feet should the weather put a damper on things, while the silver eyelets for the laces lend the sneakers a retro look. Discreet branding reflects the hallmark MINI understatement, with MINI logos on the outside of the left shoe, the back of the sole and the inside of the tongue. "Beat the street" lettering on the insole of the right shoe adds another catchy detail.
The new MINI Union Jack Sneakers will be available from September 2011 online and from all MINI dealerships, with a price tag of £67. The shoes will also be on show at the upcoming SNEAKERNESS conventions in Zurich on 18th June and in Amsterdam on 27th August 2011.
