One late night in 1943 head chef of the restaurant and coffee shop in the Foynes terminal building in Ireland came up with a drink quite by accident. When asked to come up with someone warm for a group of delayed passengers the Irish Coffee was created. This drink has gone on to become famous worldwide and Saucony Originals latest triple pack is in honour of this.
The 1991 classic that is the Shadow 6000 is host of this pack and it’s well rounded exterior allowing a strong base for the extra buttery Wolverine Silkee Suede upper. The original engineered stability in the heel and extra flexibility and cushion in the forefront remain intact.
Three very specific colorways have been chosen to resemble the three key elements needed to create the perfect Irish Coffee. The first part is the base, which is the Coffee, dark and rich in color and a punchy caffeine hit. The next step is to add a shot of strong Irish Whisky, which resembles a golden honey hue, and finally to top it off with a thick layer of soft Cream which floats effortlessly above an all white EVA midsole and triangular lug gum sole.
