The Shadow 6000 HT provides the silhouette for a “Perf” pack using perforated leather and suede panels over a classic gum sole with a light pink lining to secure a look that made the model so popular in the 90s when it was released. One option uses a white upper with a black suede mudguard and black tongue logo, while the other opts for a tonal take on aqua grey in the same materials. Each sits on a white cushioned midsole and gum outsole to lock in the retro feel.
Saucony again goes intergalactic with a Space Pack that uses the 1960s space race as their inspiration. The Shadow 6000 MD comes in two versions–a mint green and silver option with orange accents and an another with white crinkled leather, black mudguard, and black outsole. The crinkled aluminum and white uppers represent the space suits and the ships used to head into the great unknown, while details like a throwback heel font and space ship tongue logo complete the theme.
Continuing a long collaborative tradition rooted in their common state of Massachusetts, Saucony and Bodega tackle the GRID 8000 for a design based on the classifieds section of the newspaper. With mock-classified advertisements on the tongue and footbed, the rest of the model boldly applies red patent leather across the heel along with hits of black and yellow suede. A mesh area hits the side panels, and a perforated suede heel panel appears as well.
The Good Will Out x Saucony Shadow 5000 “VHS” ($130)
Germany’s The Good Will Out uses the VHS tape for its inspiration on a new Saucony Shadow 5000. Loads of details hit this collaborative model, including the test color bars on the heel and tongue tag, function buttons on the toe, and white noise on the outsole visible through a translucent outsole. The Good Will Out gets debossed branding on the heel and a script logo on the translucent outsole.
Saucony Jazz Original “Windbreaker” – Aqua Grey/Cream ($70)
1981 saw the release of the first of many Saucony Jazz models, highlighted with an outsole that promoted balance for runners. A “windbreaker” version hits our shelves with an aqua grey waxed nylon upper with contrasting light grey hits of suede. A white and aqua EVA midsole and a gum colored outsole finish off the model for a clean vintage look.
Saucony adopts the Japanese trend of bro fabric for its own duo of Grid 8500s. One pair in “Washed Denim” mixes light-colored tattered denim with darker tattered jean material over a bright white sole, while the other opts for a dark blue denim with quilted white stitching, a light denim mudguard, and cream on the stripe, midsole, outsole, and tongue.
Woodgrain and mixed brown tones cover the upper in this “Woodburn” edition of the Saucony Grid SD HT. Debossed leather provides the striated, wood-like pattern, while Wolverine Silkee suede and 3M hits on the heel round out this autumn-themed offering from the Massachusetts-based sneaker makers.
Referencing the brand’s hometown of Boston, the new Saucony Shadow 5000 features a dark burgundy upper with a laser-etched brick pattern on the toebox, tongue and heel. The leather tongue patch references another Boston landmark, the Freedom Trail, and the golden plaques marking the 16 historical sites that are found along it. A white midsole and matching rope laces add the finishing touch.
Saucony’s Shadow 5000 has a straightforward retro styling that has made it a favorite. Two new colorways have hit the shop, both with icy clear outsoles and gold speckled midsoles. The cream model features a classic suede upper with crackled leather on the toe and heel, complimented with gold on the heel logo, eyelets, and tongue logo. Following suit, the brown model has the same materials and contrasts of gold in the same locations to complete a look that feels both retro and modern.
Feature x Saucony Courageous “Belgian Waffle” ($120)
Part 2 of Feature’s “Breakfast Pack” utilizes the same Courageous model seen on the first drop, this time in a “Belgian Waffle” theme. A mix of brown and yellow premium satins and suedes drapes the upper, with nubuck quarter panels and leather accents for added material contrast. The “S” logo on the lateral features purple, pink and green 3M pops, a nod to the fruit and mint garnish found atop of waffles. Feature branding on the heel and custom insoles add the finishing touch.
