Saucony is primarily known as a performance running company. The lifestyle division isn’t as prominent. In many sneakerhead circles though certain models pop and garner considerable dough. The Saucony End x Burger is one such shoe that has found a home in the resale arena. The Bricks was a shoe that I thought should garner the same interest, but I said it wouldn’t because the shoe hasn’t really found constant promotion via sneaker sites.

Saucony doesn’t really need to pursue the sneakerhead and lifestyle market since that market is very small. Their lifestyle options are stylish and well crafted. They also tell a story about the hometown of the brand and they are gorgeous kicks. The market shouldn’t be sneakerheads, but everyone.

The Chocolate Pack is right up there with the Bricks as another one of my favorite releases of the year. Here is a description. You can use the Source Link to pick up a pair:

Fifty years ago in Kendall Square, Main Street was once known as “Confectioner’s Row”. Many major candy companies were producing products that are still known and loved today, such as Junior Mints, NECCO wafers, Charleston Chews and Sugar Daddies. The Cambridge connection with candy dates back to 1765 and an Irish immigrant by the name of John Hannon. For the next 100 years Cambridge would grow to become one of the largest industrial centers for candy makers. With that said we give you the Saucony Originals Shadow 5000 Elite “Chocolate Pack”. Inspired by the rich history in candy making of Cambridge, MA.
