Offspring 20 | Saucony – Medal Pack| Launch 30.07.16

1996 saw multiple momentous sporting events. From the grass courts of Wimbledon, to the twin towers of Wembley and the first and only Olympic Games to be held in southern USA to date.

Standing one, two and three steps above the rest, this striking pack resembles Gold, Silver and Bronze medals, with metallic toes on soft premium nubuck uppers, woven braded laces with metal aglets; enhancing the already iconic contouring on the Saucony Shadow 5000 model.





Will be available from tomorrow, online and in store! Don’t miss them!

Saucony x Epitome | Shadow 5000 Righteous One

Atlanta based sneaker store Epitome has partnered with international brand Saucony recreating their iconic shadow 5000 model.



Inspired by the 65 foot iconic Atlanta landmark “the big fish”, that lives in Buckhead directly across from Epitome’s store front, and the superstition’s affiliated with middle eastern culture. Elements of this culture inclides the Nazar-style eye in the middle dot in the formstripe, and a Hamsa Hand on the tongue label, with the Epitome logo in the middle




Dressed in premium suede with leather detailing, including an all over embossed fish scale pattern toe box. This sneaker focuses on comfort; as it is the first Saucony to ever have a memory foam insert to insure a smooth journey. Finished with a translucent sole laced with gold flakes, a “hamsa” on the tongue that serves as a protectant, and the eye of conscience to guide the way of the righteous path……

The Saucony x Epitome Shadow 5000 launches tomorrow and will only be available in OFFSPRING Selfridges.

The Drop Date: Saucony Originals “Main Squeeze” Pack

SAUCONY are getting a little bit fruity this spring. Yesterday we introduced you to the FRESH PICKED PACK inspired by berries and now we can reveal the citrus fruit inspired MAIN SQUEEZE PACK.


The SHADOW 5000, SHADOW ORIGINAL and JAZZ ORIGINAL all take their colour palette from lemons and limes, resulting in some eye-popping shades of green and yellow adorning the uppers, linings and outsoles of each shoe. Grey and black are utilised on a couple of the pairs to tone down the citrus shades, but they’re still gonna turn heads! All three pairs have white midsoles which keep things fresh and clean. This pack makes up part of the women’s line for Spring 2015, but we are going to try and not be too bitter about the lack of larger sizes!

The SAUCONY ORIGINALS MAIN SQUEEZE PACK is coming soon and will only be available in Offspring Selfridges London.

The Drop Date: Saucony Originals “Fresh Picked” Pack

SAUCONY ORIGINALS introduce us to two versions of the SHADOW 5000 that are perfect for the trainer enthusiast who likes berries or who just appreciates a good looking colourway Freshly Picked Reveal Story Shadow 5000 The pairs inspired by blueberries are, unsurprisingly, predominantly blue with pops of turquoise on the logo and lining to add extra hits of colour. Freshly Picked Reveal Shadow 5000 The blackberry pair go for purple as the main colour, with hits of grey used on the logo and heel. Both versions use black to contrast and tone down the bright uppers, with crisp white midsoles finishing off the look. Both colourways are perfect for the spring and we think they’d make a welcome addition to any wardrobe.

The SAUCONY ORIGINALS SHADOW 5000 FRESH PICKED PACK is coming soon and will only be available in Offspring Selfridges London and Offspring Shoreditch.

In honour of the exciting launch of our Saucony Originals x Offspring Shadow 6000 trainers, we hosted an exclusive Saucony party at our Offspring Commercial Street store in East London.


The store was rammed with photographers, magazine editors, bloggers and trainer fans to celebrate this exclusive launch and get a preview of our limited Shadow 6000.


While we were enjoying some hip hop beats played by club kid Siobhan Bell and mingling with fellow sneakerheads we caught up with our very own Aman Tak from the buying team who designed the models with Saucony.



Q&A with Aman (Buyer/Designer at Offspring


What was the inspiration and thought process behind the collaboration?

The inspiration was drawn from combination of factors. Trekking through some of Saucony’s archive imagery it was evident, like most early ’80s running brands, neons, turquoises, pinks were prevalent on some aspect of footwear in that era. This formed the basis of the key focal points of this collab, the side spots, speckled sole and the box. Then we looked at more modern performance product and the use of 3M reflective hits for safety which spawned the idea of a full reflective tongue.

The slogan ‘running since..96’ was inspired by the ‘We Run’ motto found on Saucony’s performance boxes. This was a way of us paying homage to both the brand and to our original OFFSPRING store which opened its doors in 1996 on Covent Garden’s Neal Street. A store I subsequently worked at many moons ago. This also inspired the grey based colour way as Covent Garden, to me, evokes images of the cobbled streets and the large paving stones of the piazza so we tried to incorporated this too.

How do you feel Saucony fits with the Offspring brand?

 We have always prided ourselves on looking outside of the regular top 4/5 brands and are continually on the hunt to expand our brand portfolio with ‘alternative’ brands and I think Saucony fits perfectly in that mould. They offer our consumers an alternative to other brands, maintaining a high level of quality not to mention their deep rooted heritage in performance and lifestyle. They have an immense loyal following globally and with our key touch points around the country we have been able to connect with these guys with our inline offering and now with this collaboration.

 Saucony is synonymous with running and the Shadow 6000 is a brilliant example of their unique style. What made you decide on the Shadow 6000?

There have been some amazing collabs on this model from some top global partners in recent times so it was an opportunity to make our mark on this iconic shoe. Hopefully we have done the Saucony following proud

Without giving too much away, can we expect any more exciting collaborations?

 Without giving away too much we have a few locked in, some with sports brands and some outside of those. Keep your eyes peeled

What trainers are you getting excited about for the summer?

There’s a lot to choose from, but from Saucony specifically there are some great Luxe Packs using hi grade materials and the collaboration product from the likes of Bait, Premier & Bodega is pretty exciting. A promising year for the brand as a whole I think.

This exclusive collaboration will be available from all Offspring stores nationwide from 10am Saturday 5th of April, and on www.offspring.co.uk from Monday 7th April at 8am.
