And now, for Austin athletes running the New York City Marathon this weekend: A pair of shoes just for you.

Brooks Running Company launched sales today of a limited edition version of its Adrenaline GTS 15 decked out with images of the New York City skyline and Lady Liberty. Instead of red, white and blue, the Freedom Adrenaline GTS is swathed in oxidized green and orange – to represent the color of the famous statue and her flame.

The shoe sells for $130.

Gotta love that.

Hundreds of Austin runners are planning to run the marathon, which is set for Sunday. Good luck!

The shoes sell for $130 and are available at several dozen stores in New York City. You can’t buy them in Austin, but can order them online. Go to http://www.BrooksRunning.com for more information.

Now I think we need a special pair (decorated with armadillos or newspapers?) for the Cap10K. Don’t you?
