Union Jack sneakers by Mini will be available from September 2011 online.
The new Union Jack sneakers from the Mini Lifestyle Collection bring the Union Jack look onto the pavement in true British style. These sports shoes come with an unmistakable Mini signature and are set to delight not only inveterate fans of the brand. In May, sports shoe enthusiasts were able to glean a first-hand impression of this unique model at the Sneakerness in Cologne, Europe’s biggest sneaker convention.
The Union Jack Sneakers by Mini are hi-tops covering his or her ankles. They come in classic blue with soles and laces in contrasting 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-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.
How to get the Union Jack sneakers by Mini
