Widely adorned for their uniquely crafted racing silhouettes, the centuries old Lexington-based running brand is fraternizing with itself for a Saucony x Saucony Shadow 6000 proposition with deep rooted ties to the art form of Kintsugi.

The process of the ancient Japanese art style involves reconstructing fractured pottery utilizing liquid gold, revealing an infinite glue-like golden seam filling the imperfections of the piece. That same process is replicated in the pistachio suede overlays as metallic gold threading connects the uppers panels and pops through cracked-like stitching along the interior medial side.

The aforementioned palette is additionally treated in its perforated nubuck base and upper eyestays in an effort to mimick the crafts embracing of flaws as the gray weathered tongue opts for a premium hint with an embossed Kanji Saucony tag tongue and faded tan laces. A grey suede heel counter is paired with a matching black speckled midsole while the chocolate brown semi-translucent outsole places the finishing touches on Saucony’s high-milage running shoe.
