UPDATE: They're coming back! After releasing and riding off into the sunset late in 2016, the 'Extra Butter For The People' Saucony Shadow 5000 colab is receiving a restock. Look for them on Extra Butter's shelves on June 20 at 11am EST.
Extra Butter took to social media for contributions from their community to produce their latest Saucony colab. In a completely new concept, the creative process was directed by popular vote on things like the model, theme, materials and colourway – they even had the chance to give their two cents on the samples that were produced. The result is the Shadow 5000 ‘EBFTP’ (Extra Butter For The People), which has been designed around a ‘night at the drive-in’ theme.
The colourway has been put together to reflect classic cars of the 50s and filled out with premium materials, like full grain leather and pigskin suede. All the little details are present, including a custom tongue label and a red reflector on the heel. They whole package comes complete with a special co-branded box with a full explanation of how the project went down.
The Extra Butter x Saucony Shadow 5000 ‘EBFTP’ goes on sale on November 8 at EB stores, the remainders will be available online from midday EST.
