You’ve seen the methodology before – a retro runner gets outfitted with a new premium color blocking, one that contrasts materials like a soft suede, mesh and or leather, and a sneaker that would normally get a pass instead garners a noteworthy amount of buzz and wins you over. That’s been the story behind plenty of Asics collaborations (this particular pair brings a Salmon Toe to mind) and now Saucony has has turned heads with this “Sea and Sand” Saucony Jazz Original. Russian retailer Anteater teamed up with the brand to outfit the silhouette in a clever play on the store’s title as the toebox gets outfitted in a sandy hue to nod at place you’d find ants prevalent while a royal nylon hits the side panels. The shoe floated around earlier this year, but now the word is that they’ll arrive at select retailers around the globe this Saturday, June 21st. What do you think? Stick around for a better look at this Saucony Jazz collaboration and reserve your pair at shops like Hanon.
