UPDATE: If you missed your size when Bodega dropped the reissue of their Saucony Shadow Elite 5000 then you're in luck. Select stockists will be dropping a wider release on October 15. It's not often you'll get that many chances to cop such a sought after shoe, if you miss this one you might not get another shot. Be sure to hit up your local, or jump onto Overkill for a shot.
In 2010, the Saucony Elite concept was developed to release luxurious reinterpretations of classic silhouettes exclusively through select Japanese retailers. Although the program ultimately expanded globally, the Elite series continued to be a scarce and highly coveted resource.
Six years later, Boston’s Bodega have announced that they’ve dug deep into the crypt to reissue their heated Elite colab as part of their tenth anniversary celebrations. The Bodega x Saucony Elite Shadow 5000 is colourblocked perfection atop a classic natural gum outsole. The premium suede Shadow 5000 will drop in a duo – one with royal blue panels, the other in a toned-down turquoise – of perforated grey toed perfection.
Those that missed the first drop of the Bodega x Saucony Elite Shadow 5000 Reissue, the second coming is your chance at redemption. The sneakers release on October 8 on limited numbers exclusively at Bodega online and in store.
