Saucony x West NYC Shadow 90 "Saltwater"
Joint work of the sneaker brand Saucony and West NYC boutique with reference to the sea landscapes and spirit of deep water fishing.
Sea fishing is one of the most popular hobbies, adored by men all over the world. Many species of fish are rather unpredictable, as well as open water, from which you can expect anything. From shallow to deep water, from elegant salmon to massive marlin, true fishermen are able to spend dozens of hours and overcome hundreds of kilometers in search of their happiness. These are the values which found reflection in the collaborative release of Saucony with the sneaker boutique named West NYC. Indeed, it’s hard not to think about seafaring, when the ocean is actually in walking distance from your store, and huge liners enter the harbor of your hometown everyday.
SYMBOLISM OF THE COLOR PALETTE
The sneaker silhouette is presented in captivating colors, where each element is a reference to the fisherman’s inventory. The main color is grey, symbolizing the threadbare boat sides, the white sole and toe - the fishing net color, pink inserts on the heel and tongue - the color of fishing tackles. It should be also noted that the model is equipped with slip-resistant sole that will surely be useful when it’s raining, and decorative inserts of carbon fiber, used for manufacturing spinnings.
THE HYBRID SHADOW 90 MODEL
Shadow 90 is a hybrid model, combining the top from Shadow 6000 and the sole from Shadow 5000. Having started some time ago as a limited series in conjunction with Solebox, now it has become a part of the permanent collection of the American brand. The distinguishing feature of this model is the composite sole EVA material, as well as presence of vibrant inserts, logo on the tongue and laces with contrasting tips.
The sales start October 28.
