Just like pairing a fine wine with cheese, at Neon Bandits we like to pair fine socks with fresh kicks.  We stay on top of the latest and greatest sneaker releases, and are always thinking about how we can pair them up with Neon Bandits. In the spirit of summer being just around the corner, we’ve paired up Neon Bandits with some of the hottest new sneaker releases.

Growing up in Boston, you know that Spring officially starts once Marathon Monday rolls around. Arguably the best sporting event in a city obsessed with sports, the Boston Marathon is a special race that starts out in Hopkinton, Massachusetts and weaves its way through the crowded suburban Boston streets and finishes in the heart of downtown Boston.
