Mini gets sneaky with new set of kicks.

Hard as it might be to believe, there are some people out there who are as into sneakers as we are into cars. Crazy, we know. But they're out there. Now Mini is trying to bridge the gap with a special pair of its own kicks.

The latest item in the Mini Lifestyle Collection, the Union Jack Sneaker are festooned with – you guessed it – the Union Jack, the flag of the United Kingdom that has graced so many a Mini roof over the years. The shoes are made primarily out of canvas, with white soles and laces and Mini logos aplenty.

Just like the latest Mini cars are unveiled at major auto shows, these sneaks were previewed at the Sneakerness convention in Cologne, Germany, and will go on tour with the traveling expo to Zurich and Amsterdam. But if you're not planning on heading there yourself, you can check 'em out in our high-res image gallery and the press release after the jump.
