When it came to Boston '18, we didn't stop with Team with a Vision. As we mentioned a few months back, we partnered with with the team over at the Heartbreak Hill Running Company to develop a performance running sock. Given that the Boston Marathon is the biggest running event here in Boston, we worked with them to develop four exclusive Heartbreak Hill x Neon Bandits designs exclusive to HHRC for the race; they launched a couple of weeks back and are only available at their three retail locations and online. The four designs that we launched with them are were designed to celebrate...

In only a few short weeks, runners from around the world will arrive in Hopkinton, Massachusetts to start the 26.2-mile journey to the finish line of the 2018 Boston Marathon. Known as arguably the most iconic marathon in the world, professional and charity runners alike run shoulder to shoulder along the route with the goal of finishing the race on Boylston Street in downtown Boston.

Boston. The city that we grew up in, and have called home our entire lives. The city is a special place for us and one that fits (and helped form) the Neon Bandits lifestyle.

We went through many rounds of samples by throwing them into...

For the past few months, we've been working along side the Partnership Team at Boston Children's Hospital to develop and design a custom sock for the Corporate Cup Challenge. The event is a field-day competition among some of the largest businesses in the city of Boston designed to raise money for the Boston Children's Hospital.  We can't totally say that our custom tubes lead the victor to the podium, but we can say that we were honored to partner and support this one-of-a-kind Boston-based institution.  These limited edition custom socks won't be available online and are only available through the Boston Children's Hospital...
