'The Jackson' metallic sneakers honor the bicentennial of the Battle of New Orleans, with a patriotic midsole that's contrasted against a gold-dipped heel.

Using the 'Saucony Courageous' style as its base, the Sneaker Politics collaboration came up with a lot of details for these shoes. The runners have a soft suede base in navy and beige, with a heel that looks like it's been touched by Midas to add some luxury style. On the tongue is the gold logo, while the inner sole is decorated with an American flag. Finally, the midsole features a linear red, white and blue layering -- completing the nationally-themed runners.

Laces for the shoes come in navy, white or gold, finishing off the statement look of these metallic sneakers.
