Recently appointed to Creative Director of Shoe Palace, industry veteran Frank Cooke — who previously worked for the likes of Jordan Brand and Wish ATL — is now receiving his very own, collaborative Saucony Jazz 81.
“This project means so much because Saucony has always provided a great product that remains relevant,” Cooke commented. “For me, personal style does not always have to be displayed through high end fashion or footwear. You should always make what you wear come to life, never let it make you.”
Straightforward in its colorway, layering pink and purple suedes over top a black base, the Frank Cooke x Saucony Jazz 81 is an homage to the newly-crowned Creative Director’s childhood and his history with the silhouette. As such, Cooke has left a personal, handwritten note — one signed by Cooke’s 7th grade counterpart — across the shoe’s insole and packaging that reads: “I know these don’t go with all my school clothes mom+dad, but I still need em.”
Limited to 750 pairs, the Frank Cooke x Saucony Jazz 81 is releasing alongside apparel on December 9th exclusively at APBstore.com and APB locations in Tallahassee, Jacksonville, Greenville, Columbia, and Charleston.
