Feel like showing off a little Canadian pride during your next workout? Meet New Balance’s new Olympic-inspired ultra light-weight trainer, the 890 Canada, inspired by marathon duo Reid Coolsaet and Eric Gillis. Designed in a patriotic red and based on the cult favourite 890v2, the launch of the Canadiana style will be perfectly timed with our countdown to the start of the Olympic Summer Games in London.

Whether you’re looking to get fit or perhaps begin training for the next round of games, break a sweat in these new additions while supporting New Balance’s Speed River Spirit Fund in Guelph, a club that assists with premedical care for our young and very talented Olympians.

Available June 1: 890 Canada by New Balance, $140,
