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.
This summer Saucony Originals are embracing the warmer weather with their classic ice cream flavour inspired G9 Shadow 5.
This hybrid Saucony model is aptly named “Strawberry Vanilla” using the colourway as a vivid representation of 2 of the best loved ice cream flavours. Carrying on the sweet treat style, the silhouette boasts a premium red- and pink-coloured suede upper, with a speckled tri-color midsole and a spoon emblem on the tongue.
Fusing a Grid 9000 and Shadow 5000, this limited edition model is launching on Friday 15th May.
It will be available online and in selected OFFSPRING stores.
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.
