Saucony Shadow 5000

Published By

Though it’s not something you might often think of, footwear technology is an amazing thing. Each year, brands put thousands of hours of research into coming up with their latest shoes—refining every detail to a T, and looking for the perfect balance of looks, performance, and price. So when a shoe has remained largely unchanged for three decades, you know it’s a truly amazing shoe.

That’s darned close to what Saucony’s Shadow 5000 offers. Originally released in 1989, it is now being re-released with updated materials to transform it into a gorgeous blend of athletics and aesthetics. Mesh and suede uppers give it a real throwback look, and a lightweight and breathable feel that’s great for warmer weather. And in true late-’80s style, it’s heavily cushioned and padded in the midsole, collar, and tongue for extra comfort and exaggerated style.
