Play Cloths follows up its last collaborative release with Saucony with this new set of Shadow 5000s dubbed the “Cotton Candy Pack”. Built with lux suede uppers and featuring the iconic starry perforated toe-boxes, Play Cloths’ latest rendition of the Saucony Shadow 5000 is defined by three distinct pastel colors that represent the fluffy sweets often see at carnivals, street fairs, and other summer-time family outings. All three feature tonal uppers of Dream Blue, Coral Almond, and Mimosa with white midsoles, gum outsoles, special inner linings, and the aforementioned star detailing at the toe-box, laying out the perfect “summer shoe” vibe. The Play Cloths x Saucony Shadow 5000 “Cotton Candy Pack” will release in limited numbers in the coming weeks – first exclusively for users of the Swaag iPhone App (download for free and be first in line to cop) followed by a later release at select retailers, so enjoy the exclusive gallery below and stay tuned for a firm release date.
I'm going to share what came to my head when I saw these. (take it or leave it)
I don't know why. But when I saw these, I realized "wow" what a SICK line of shoes. Then realized, wait, unless the earth tears apart in half, and I am alive, there are always going to be newly launched sneakers by saucony, asics, adidas, and of course, NIKE.
OG models and pairs are definitely worth the hype, like new innovations in shoes. BUT these shoes made me realize, man, if I can keep my shoe spending to a minimum and save some money, I can do the same later in my life after I take care of all the neccessary sh** in life (kids, house etc)
Sorry for the lame talk. but these are SO clean.
