Wolfgang Johann von Goethe is one of the most respected poets and belongs to the circle of representatives in the world of literature. With over 50,000 pieces of his art, the Goethe Museum in Düsseldorf hosts the largest exhibition of his work. The Saucony Originals x Afew Store Shadow 5000 Control is inspired by Goethe, one of the greatest Poets in the history of literautre and the Goethe Museum in Düsseldorf. This colorway pays homage to the colors of the 1763 castle with rose and grey. Like the beautiful architecture, the materials had to be premium to fit the concept.
A premium Suede extends from the heel to the toe. Some elements of the leather are perforated. In reference to Goethe and his literary world heritage, the details of these masterpieces should be precisely reminiscent. The Poet himself was perpetuated on the tongue and presents itself in a paper cut patch. You’ll find one of his famous poems on the heels, next a debossed Afew store logo. Another one of Goethe's poems adorns the footbeds to tie in another beautifully intricate detail of this collaboration. For the finishing touch, there is a third poem inscribed on one set of additional laces, in a style of poetry written with a feather pen. All pairs will come in a special box, where you’ll find an exclusive bookmark and a booklet with information about this special project.
