For a name that’s been around since 1898, it can be easy to take Saucony’s innovative prowess for granted, seeing as it’s been pumping out performance shoes since the 19th century. Nevertheless, the brand continues to impress, as its new Shadow 6000 Trail shoes are ideal for taking on the unbeaten path.
As you may have figured from their name, the technical pair of kicks is tailored toward trail running, as they’re enhanced by water-and-abrasion-resistant materials like sturdy nylon ripstop. The Shadow 6000’s upper is composed of breathable, high-quality mesh and strips of premium blue and black leather, combining to make an eye-popping shoe that is comfortable as it is stylish.
Described by the brand as “Saucony’s take on Saucony,” the boldly-colored release is further accented with hints of neon green and orange, giving the silhouette a distinctly ’90s feel. Cosmetically, Saucony’s new trainer garners inspiration from hiking through the great outdoors, which is made evident by its rugged, lugged outsole and mud-splattered graphics coating the heel and midsole. All in all, no matter where you choose to wear the Massachusetts-based shoemaker’s latest, you’re sure to stand out quite a bit.
Summer is right around the corner, and another pair of shoes could never hurt at this time of year — particularly one as capable and colorful as this. You can cop a pair of Shadow 6000 Trails on Saucony’s website now for $140.
