The new MINI Union Jack Sneaker has recently been announced as one of the features in the car company's highly anticipated MINI Lifestyle Collection for fall 2011. While using national flags as the print for a shoe can very often appear overwhelming, the Union Jack has been infused into the shoe very subtly. The MINI Union Jack sneaker combines just the right amount of patriotic pride and savvy street style. The high-top design of the shoe is very urban and hip, and is covered in a denimlike canvas material.

The shoe has an overall clean and stylish look, with a stark white bottom sole and crisp white laces. Each shoe is printed with "Beat the Street" on the inside of every sole. These flag-bearing kicks will be available for purchase come September online and at MINI car dealerships. Stats for Flag-Inspired Footwear Trending: Older & Chilly
