Saucony is proud to present their new collaboration with West NYC, the new Shadow 6000 “Fresh Water” edition. The latest version features colours, hues and textures specific to the great outdoors. WEST NYC pulled out all the stops to create the ultimate outdoor hiking and fishing experience.
We’ll let them explain the collaboration in their own words: “Bringing an outdoor colour palate scheme and material story that is unique to a sneaker. The upper features two different brown leathers and Brown premium tumbled nubuck to capture the various terrain one encounters when hiking to their respective fishing hole.
This contrasts sharply with the white perforated leather used on the toe and side of the shoe for an eye catching look. For a finishing touch, they employed a brown oiled suede on the side panel which mirrors the easy terrain surrounding a fishing hole. The aqua colour speaks softly to the clean fresh water you find in a lake.
Although fresh water is not a true aqua colour, it is how we imagine it to be on a sunny serene day. Grip tape on the toe, heel and logo represent “no skids” found on a boat. The insole is produced from the same natural cork you find on the handle wrap of a fishing rod. The cork provides super grip on a rod handle. It is the perfect compliment for a shoe’s innersole.
This unique shoe was originally themed for freshwater fishing and hiking. The Fresh Water edition also speaks to a famous Chinese proverb dear to my heart. ‘GIVE a man a fish and you feed him for a day. TEACH a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime’.”
