Blast into this season’s Modern Collection with the Shadow 6000 “Space”. Taking inspiration from our long history, we’ve captured the 1960’s space race aesthetic in two distinct colorways. The color blocked Shadow 6000 utilizes the space aged tyvek material fused with rubberized synthetic to create an out of this world upper combination. Accents include a ribbed tongue, similar to spacesuits worn in the heyday of exploration, vintage branding on the heel and a woven rocket branding on the label.

In this past year Saucony has released probably the best set of kicks featuring retro qualities. The Chocolate Pack, The Bricks, and the Originators Pack were all premium built trainers that emphasized attention to detail in a package that was stylish and comfortable. This time around the brand reaches beyond the heavens and integrates TyVek and Rubber to capture the essence of walking with the stars.
The Space Pack releases in two colorways and while it feels as if these should have dropped in the spring or summer, the build of shoe caters to the winter weather. The rubberized side panel and TyVek creates a barrier against the elements. The shoe isn’t waterproof but it is water resistant and the material is used to actually protect houses in some instances. When you drop a rugged outsole below it the shoe looks spring ready but is actually perfect for the Fall season. Use the source link to read more and check out more shots of the Shadow Space 6000.
