The great thing about getting into a category as broad and far-reaching as sneakers is, perhaps, the history that comes along with it. From chasing rare, old-school launches to the latest, freshest kicks, burgeoning sneakerheads and style fans alike are sure to find something they can wear, covet, or collect — or ideally, a bit of all three.
Enter the striking, well-designed and highly affordable Saucony Jazz Original Climbing Sneaker, a unique take on old-school sneakers made for the modern man to go from the city to the trail and back. Saucony’s got a history of technical performance imbued within its line, and that stretches back decades — this is why the ‘80s-inspired Jazz Original Climbing Sneaker works so well. It’s part chunky runner, part hiking sneaker (yes, such a thing exists), and it’s done up in bold, bright, colorful designs for the guy who’s not afraid to add a slight amount of flash to his trail-ready gear.
The lightweight construction, plus suede and nylon uppers, all come together handsomely in a shoe that would work just as stylishly with faded denim and a crewneck sweatshirt the coffee shop as it would team with chore pants and a thermal henley for your next hike.
