Saucony bringing through some serious heat is becoming a weekly occurrence here at Attitude Inc.! We had the incredibly premium, and incredibly limited, “Letterman” Grid 9000 last week, and it’s been followed up this week by the “Egg Hunt” pack. This time the Shadow 6000 model is utilised, one of Saucony’s most popular models due to fantastic releases like the Irish Coffee pack and previous Bodega collaborations. Three bright tonal colour-ups are splashed onto the model this time around, just in time to get you in the Easter mood.
As the name suggests, the pack is based on the eggs that we all love to hunt during the Easter period. Eggs are often dyed in incredibly bright colours to make them easier to spot, and the three colourways we have in this pack take clear inspiration from this. We have an electric teal offering, akin to a Diamond Supply collaboration, a rich purple, as deep as the name implies, and a cerulean blue that, for a cold colour, is simply pure heat. Spring is just around the corner and it is time to start looking for those brighter kicks to take you into summer beyond that, in which case you need look no further. All of the vivid colourways in this pack are sure to be popular, with pastel tones on somewhat of a revival this season.
As we have come to expect from Saucony, all of the sneakers in the pack feature incredibly premium suedes. The material suits this model perfectly, giving it a very classic, 1990’s runner feel, and also allows for the colours to be much bolder. Saucony is incomparable to most of its rivals in this respect, I will be surprised if you see any sneaker with a better suede quality than these this summer. The laces are kept in tonal colours on each sneaker, to ensure that nothing takes away from the overall aesthetic. Another common feature utilised by Saucony is a white midsole, and again it is a great addition to each of the colourways in this pack because of the contrast created between itself and the upper. Usually, we can expect a gum outsole from Saucony, but this time around they have opted for a white outsole, a very good decision in this case as again it contrasts strongly against the intense colours on the uppers of each sneaker.
These will release both in-store and online here at Attitude Inc. this Saturday, 18th March. Don’t expect these to hang around for long at all though, pick up some of this spring/summer goodness before it’s too late!
Final Thought – black may not be the most summer-ready colour, but an all-black outfit is a great way to style any of the sneakers in this pack, give it a try!
