These sports shoes come with an unmistakable signature and are set to delight not only fans of the brand. In May, sports shoe enthusiasts were able to glean a first-hand impression of this unique model at the Sneakerness event in Cologne, Germany - Europe's biggest sneaker convention.
The Mini Union Jack Sneakers are hi-tops covering the 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 is on the sole to ensure these sneakers will leave behind a distinctly British footprint.
The upper material is water-repellent canvas, guaranteeing dry feet, while the silver eyelets for the laces lend the sneakers a retro look.
Discreet branding includes Mini logos on the outside of the left shoe, the back of the sole and the inside of the tongue.
The Mini Union Jack Sneakers will be available from September 2011 on the internet at www.MINI.de/shop and from select Mini dealers.
