Sneakers76 X Saucony Shadow 5000 (The Legend Of God Taras)
UPDATE: Following a sell-out release through Sneakers76, these mythological Shadow 5000s have begun washing up at select Saucony stockists around the globe, including Packer. The New Jersey boutique has already sold through their allocation, but you might get lucky at another retailer if you act fast. Good luck!
Sneakers76 round out their 10th anniversary series of releases with this Shadow 5000 inspired by the ancient origins of Taranto, their seaside home. As legend has it, the city was founded by the god Taras, in appreciation of Poseidon, who sent a dolphin to rescue him from a shipwreck. The elaborate back story is captured through a mix of premium leather and suede. Maritime blues hug the heel, while the city’s signature ‘rosso’ red adorns the toe. The heel counters are coated in wood veneer, while debossed trident tongues add an extra special touch to this mythological release.
Like Sneakers76's other 10th anniversary releases, these comes packaged in deluxe 'encyclopedia' packaging, complete with bonus Jason Markk cleaning kit.
