Widely adorned for its unique running silhouettes, the age-old Lexington-based running brand is fraternizing with itself for a Saucony x Saucony Shadow 6000 proposition with deep-rooted ties to the art form of Kintsugi.
The process of the ancient Japanese art style involves reconstructing fractured pottery using liquid gold, revealing a golden seam resembling infinite glue filling in the imperfections of the piece. This same process is replicated in the pistachio suede overlays as metallic gold threading connects the upper panels and shows through cracked stitching along the inner medial side.
The aforementioned palette is further processed in its perforated nubuck base and upper eyelets in a bid to mimic flaw-encompassing craftsmanship while the weathered gray tongue opts for a premium touch with a Kanji Saucony embossed tongue and laces. faded bronzers. A gray suede heel counter is paired with a matching black speckled midsole while the chocolate brown semi-translucent outsole brings the finishing touch to Saucony’s high-mileage running shoe.
