It’s the time of year where many major shoe brands are releasing their limited-edition Boston Marathon kicks. Each has their own unique design, inspired by everything from parts of New England (like Brooks’ Nantucket-inspired shoe), to areas of the course (check out the elevation chart on the side of Newton’s nod to the famous Newton hills), to specific colorways (adidas stuck with the traditional blue and yellow colors for one of two options). Take a peek at which shoes you’ll see most of walking and running around Copley Square.
