Saucony Shadow 5000 Chocolate

Inspired by the rich history in candy making of Cambridge, MA.  Saucony Originals presents the Shadow 5000 ‘Chocolate Pack’.

The Cambridge connection with chocolate dates back to 1765 and an Irish immigrant called John Hannon.  Hannon established America’s first chocolate mill along the Neponset River.  For the next 100 years Cambridge would grow and become one of the largest industrial centre for chocolate makers.

Anything with chocolate, is must have in our eyes.

adidas x Spezial launch event

Last week saw the launch of the AW’16 collection of adidas Originals Spezial, curated by Gary Aspden.

To celebrate the launch we gathered at Munro House in Leeds for an exhibition of the look book, shot by Nick Knight featuring Wolf Gillespie, and a special (see what we did there) DJ set from Mr Terry Hall.

The latest collection sees some iconic pieces from the adidas archive re-imagined, the GT Manchester and Indoor Super being the talk of the night.

We also had a quick chat with man of the moment Gary Aspden, read it here.

Bodega x Saucony Elite Shadow 5000 ReIssue

Bodega x Saucony Elite Shadow 5000 ReIssue

In 2010, when the Saucony Elite concept was born, the idea was for these reinterpretations of classic silhouettes to be released exclusively through high-level Japanese retailers. Well, as you can imagine, people were not very happy about that and while Saucony Elite shoes, ultimately, did not end up exclusive to Japan, they still became pretty exclusive and highly revered.

Six years later, that the Bodega entry into the Saucony Elite series remains extremely sought after. As part of Bodega’s ongoing tenth anniversary celebrations, the Bodega archive has been rifled through and luckily for us this much desired shoe is back.

Launches – SATURDAY 15th OCTOBER
