Kick up your heels in the new MINI Union Jack Sneakers. These cool hi-top kicks are the latest addition to the MINI Lifestyle Collection.

Sporting the Union Jack motif on the heel cap and along the shoelace eyelets, the MINI sneakers are styling in blue and contrasting white soles and laces. According to MINI, you’ll be able to leave behind a distinctly British footprint behind wherever you go.

The MINI Union Jack Sneakers are made with a water-repellent canvas and silver eyelets. MINI puts their mark on the shoes as well, discreetly leaving their mark on the outside of the left shoe, the back of the sole and the inside of the tongue. Another unique detail is the “Beat the street” lettering on the insole of the right shoe.

You’re going to have to wait until September 2011 to pick up a pair, but if you’re in Zurich on June 18 or in Amsterdam on August 27, you can buy them at the SNEAKERNESS conventions.

Love your MINI Cooper and its awesome British heritage. Your MINI might be sporting the stylish Union Jack on the roof but perhaps you need something to complement it in the interior. It’s a good thing Recaro is one step ahead of you, releasing their Union Jack seats that would most certainly meet with the approval of Austin Powers.

The Union Jack seats are part of their Sportster CS series and are available through the Attractive4Mini program. And like all Recaro seats, these are made for comfort and support while providing plenty of protection. No pricing has been made available but they will be released to the public on September 18th. So stop sippin’ that tea and get to ordering yourself a pair of new seats.
