For its latest sneaker collaboration, Extra Butter went in full “story-mode” with its compelling “Space Race” Pack with Saucony. It began with the “ACES”, which highlighted the preparation and and training astronauts go through prior to space travel. The follow-up – the “Space Snack” – was a playful take on ice cream for outer space. The final installment, the “Moonwalker”, provides the final chapter by reflecting on man’s most revered achievement outside Earth’s atmosphere – walking on the moon.
At the core of the “Moonwalker” is the Shadow 6000 silhouette; its built with a sport micro-mesh base, 210 Denier, durable nylon osford, and sheen reflective panels. Further detailing the inspiration of the moon walk is the silver colorway and the graphic print on the upper that represents the lunar landscape of the moon. The final landing (or release) will occur on May 31st in-store at Extra Butter locations in LES and RVC, followed by an online release on June 2nd. The Moonwalker is exclusive to Extra Butter and is the most limited of the three Space Race releases, so don’t skip out on this one. Get a closer look below and stay tuned for the release later this month.
