Tribute to Boston

Boston Magazine have released an image of their May cover dedicated to the Boston Marathon bombings. The issue was in its final proofing stage before the tragic events of last week but was quickly scrapped as the events unfolded.

The issue now contains a package called ‘The Shoes We Wore’ written by runners in reflection of the heartbreak. And the cover represents something powerful for the spirit of Boston and the running community. John Wolfson, Editor in Chief of Boston Magazine eloquently wrote:  

"To me the cover is about two things: perseverance and unity. By itself, each shoe in the photograph is tiny, battered, and ordinary. Together, though, they create something beautiful, powerful, and inspirational. Remove just one shoe and you begin to diminish, in some small way, the overall effect. Collectively, they are the perfect symbol for Boston, and for our response to the bombings.”.

To read more about the story behind the cover take a look at Wolfson’s piece here.

The Adidas Boston tribute tee can be ordered from the US website and has a country option on the ordering drop-down. Hence it should ship to UK. Perhaps you could let us know whether it works. The Altra tribute tee is not shipped outside US

Stay this side of the pond and buy from - 100% of retail price is passed on. They only seem to be stocking US sizes (XL and 2XL) at the moment.
