Running shoe and apparel brands have released Boston Marathon-specific gear over the last few weeks, giving Boston-bound runners plenty of options leading up to race day. Marathon Sports, a specialty running store with a location at the finish line on Boylston Street, now carries a Boston edition of Mizuno’s popular Wave Rider 18 ($125), available exclusively in the store and on the company’s website. The shoe features red, blue and green, commemorating three of the city’s beloved sports teams: Boston Red Sox, New England Patriots and Boston Celtics. “Run Bos 2015” is inscribed on the tongue of the shoe, celebrating the historic race that starts in Hopkinton and finishes in Copley Square.
