Saucony, the Massachusetts-based sneaker powerhouse, has once again teamed up with the esteemed German retailer Asphaltgold to put a fresh spin on the beloved Shadow 6000 silhouette.
In a stroke of sheer brilliance, Asphaltgold draws inspiration from the fast-paced rhythm of our lives, presenting us with the captivating concept of “Accelerate Decelerate” for Saucony’s timeless vintage running model. It’s a perfect marriage of two opposing forces that are inseparable. This philosophy perfectly aligns with the Shadow 6000, a shoe that hit the ground running in 1991 and took the running world by storm.
Asphaltgold’s take on the Shadow 6000 is a fusion of classic suede and rugged mesh, elevating the silhouette to new heights while still retaining a hint of familiarity. The silver wave-shaped side panels pay homage to the golden era of retro running shoes and the exhilarating rush of fast cars, evoking a wave of nostalgic emotions. And breaking new ground, a miniature wave logo proudly debuts on the mudguard, adding an extra touch of style. The reserved color palette of light grey, various shades of white, and hints of olive perfectly encapsulates the spirit of “Accelerate Decelerate,” breathing new life into this timeless icon.
But let’s not waste any more time and dive into the mesmerizing campaign photography. The highly-anticipated “Accelerate Decelerate” Shadow 6000 will be exclusively available online at asphaltgold.com on October 14th, at 6pm CEST. However, for those who crave the immersive in-store experience, mark your calendars for the same day at 11am CEST. This must-have creation will be offered in a wide range of sizes, catering to everyone from EU 35.5 to 48, with a price tag of 159€ (approximately $169 USD).
