CORRECTION – PLEASE NOTE THIS PROJECT HAS NOW BEEN CONFIRMED AS SAUCONY ELITE, A NEW INITIATIVE WITH TOTAL FOCUS ON JAPANESE RETAILERS.

Saucony have teamed up with Bodega for this crispy take on their Shadow 5000 model. The mile-deep suede looks the nuts, and the next-gen colour blocking adds a lil’ sparkle to this underrated retro jogger – those creamy midsoles and ‘fum’ colored rubber sole are the cherrys on top of this Boston sundae! Now, as far as we know, these will only be available in Japanese Saucony top-level accounts, which is somewhat infuriating, but thoroughly deserves applause in this day and age of unchecked global proliferation. The rest of the details are somewhat sketchy, but all we can say is that these are going straight to the top of our MUST HAVE list in 2010! Who knows which Saucony might be next to be revived?

発売前から話題となっていたSaucony Eliteが4月3日に発売開始。Shadow5000 のモデルは、シックな革とスエード4色で提供されています。Nalu 大阪店、Lafayette 横浜店、UPTOWN Deluxe 福岡、Privilege 東京で購入できます。
