Surprise surprise, Europe has another sick retro runner on its hands! Here we take a look at the Solebox x Saucony Shadow 5000. The German shop Solebox is no stranger to collabs and personally I have liked almost everything I have seen them DROP. For this one they once again look to the Saucony Shadow 5000 for their canvas and create 2 great works of art. The first pair features a primarily black and white make-up of suede with pink hits on the eyelets and lining. This pair is versatile enough to wear with anything while still adding a little pop with the pink. The second shoe of the pack is a little louder featuring a black and pink make up in the same suede with the pink appearing on the toe cap similar to Ronnie Fieg’s Salmon Toe Asics from last month. This pair still features enough black to be very versatile but are you man enough to rock the pink? It is breast cancer awareness month after all! As per usual these will more than likely be limited in numbers and reach when they DROP but if any German heads want to send a pair my way I’d be happy to return the favor!(thanks to SneakerNews for the pics/info)


The retro runner game is not just for Europe anymore and I for one couldn’t be happier! Below is the new collab from Boston’s Bodega and Saucony. Saucony is another brand that is known for running but has been gaining street cred with its collaborations with popular retailers like Berlin’s Solebox. The Bodega x Saucony Elite Grid 9000 pack features more great fall colors that can carry straight through to spring. The first pair features blue, grey, and purple with a gum sole that all just flow perfectly. These would be great with some khakis or your favorite pair of denim.

The next pair features a slightly toned down set of the same colors sans the purple. This pair doesn’t pop as much to me but is still a neck breaker in its own right.

Look for both pairs at Grand Rapids’ Premier or your favorite Saucony spot. Shouts to SneakerNews for the story.
