With the evolution of the consumer in mind, we designed the Shadow 5000 Mod with the intention of creating a more minimal iteration of the classic Shadow 5000. Reducing the amount of panels on the Shadow 5000 Mod gave us the opportunity to slim down this silhouette and offer up a modern spin to a retro running legend.
When we first introduced the Shadow 5000 in the 80’s we had cutting edge performance in mind. Fast forward to 2016 and we deliver you a sleek & refined version that caters to comfort and style of the modern shoe dog looking for a kick to make a statement in a sea of noise.
Our Shadow 5000 Mod was created with an entirely new make up of an existing material package. We engineered a triple layer mesh upper with a full length 3M reflective underlay. Without a direct light source, the shoe looks black with a subtle stripe pattern. When activated by light, you’ll be sure to turn heads as you step out into the night. Our enclosed Ghillie lacing system provides a lock down fit and mimics the seamless look and feel of the minimal upper. Wolverine Silkee suede hits the toe box and heel counter. The Saucony Originals badging is a subtle element of finishing design on the heel.
The Saucony Originals Select “Shadow 5000 Mod” will be a limited release, exclusively available on saucony.com on December 16th at 12pm EST.
