Saucony x Saucony represents the highest level of creativity, taking iconic sneakers from the collection and reinterpreting them in the highest quality fabrications. For the final release of SS23, the Shadow 5000 takes inspiration from the wildlife and evolution of the Galapagos Islands, with a colorway inspired by the exotic landscape.
Originally released in 1989 as a performance runner, the Shadow 5000 has transcended its sporting roots and evolved into a modern classic. A shock-absorbing EVA midsole brings the comfort of the sneakers to the next level and XT-600 triangular, translucent lug rubber sole provides expert grip. Featuring the Blue Footed Booby on the tongue to play to the shoe’s inspiration, and tropical shades of blue, green, white, and pink which set a summery tone. The open mesh, suede overlays, leather detailing give the sneaker an elevated look.
Released in limited numbers and crafted in the highest quality materials, the Saucony x Saucony Blue Footed Booby, its name eponymous with one of the island’s most recognized birds, is truly distinctive and one of a kind.
