Adidas released photos for the 2016 Boston Marathon runner’s jacket today and most on social media weren’t taking too kindly to the Faberge egg like colors (albeit with some humor).
Adidas and Boston are taking the Unicorn thing a little too seriously. The 2016 jacket looks like My Little Pony exploded. #Bostonmarathon

They remind me of the 1993 Charlotte Hornets warmup jackets that Larry ‘Grandmama’ Johnson and Alonzo Mourning used to wear.
See?? I think the Hornets might have a beef with Adidas and Boston copying their early 90’s teal jackets.
Well on the bright side at least the Boston Marathon jacket will match Adidas’ new shoe they just released:

Remember it’s just a jacket and that there are many runners who BQ’d but were locked out with the cutoff this year for getting into the race. They would love this ‘ugly’ jacket.
