I’m well into Saucony at the moment; not only because they keep making lovely, lovely trainers that make me a little cooler, but because the lovely, lovely trainers make me a little bit taller, too. Everyone’s happy.
For Spring/Summer 2018, Saucony plunge into their archives to bring back a classic in the Shadow 5000. Originally released in 1989 as a performance model, the shoe represents a period of innovation in running technology where athletics met aesthetics.
29 years later, the Shadow 5000 has transcended its sporting roots and evolved into a modern classic. The shoe features a combination of suede and nylon across the uppers, with a comfortable padded collar around the heel and a premium rubber outsole for unparalleled grip.
For 2018, Saucony have taken things back to the essence with three new colourways. These clean combinations show off the Shadow 5000’s sleek shape, utilising a vintage colour palette and smart use of materials to breathe new life into a modern classic.
Like all Saucony trainers, these will look mustard with a pair of shorts this summer. Get some, be taller and be cooler. Buy them now at www.saucony.com.
