Back in 2015 Saucony struck on to something special in a collaboration with Atlanta retailer Epitome. The resulting ‘Rightous One’ Saucony Shadow 5000 had a white EVA midsole splattered with gold paint, an icy translucent outsole, gold blaring on the heel counter and two complementarily coloured eyelets. Quickly snapped up by those who knew what was good for them, the shoe didn’t last long. Now, however, Saucony are giving punters another chance at the tooling – and are even improving on it. Coming in cream and brown respectively, these two new Saucony 5000s feature all the goodies listed above – plus crackled leather treatment that distinguishes the toe box and heel counter – making for one righteous sneaker duo.
The Saucony Shadow 5000 Crackled Leather pack is available now from Feature.
