Saucony, the Massachusetts-based sneaker powerhouse, is back at it again, teaming up with the esteemed German retailer Asphaltgold to reimagine the beloved Shadow 6000 silhouette.
In a stroke of genius, Asphaltgold draws inspiration from the fast-paced rhythm of our lives, presenting us with the concept of “Accelerate Decelerate” for Saucony’s timeless vintage running model. It’s a harmonious union between the two opposing forces, where one simply cannot exist without the other. This philosophy aligns flawlessly with the Shadow 6000, a shoe that first hit the pavement in 1991, captivating the hearts of avid runners everywhere.
Asphaltgold’s interpretation of the Shadow 6000 is a fusion of classic suede and rugged mesh, elevating the silhouette to new heights while maintaining a sense 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. Breaking new ground, a miniature wave logo emerges, proudly making its debut on the mudguard. The reserved color palette of light grey, various shades of white, and hints of olive perfectly encapsulates the spirit of “Accelerate Decelerate,” breathing fresh life into this timeless icon.
But enough chit-chat, let’s feast our eyes on the mesmerizing campaign photography. The highly-anticipated “Accelerate Decelerate” Shadow 6000 will be available exclusively 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.
