Sneakers76 teamed up with Saucony to release the fourth and latest collaboration to celebrate its 10th Anniversary, and it's a stunner!
The protagonist of this collab is one of our favorite silhouette of the American brand, the Shadow 5000. This sneaker has been used before for other collaborations but never with these colors or such a beautiful story behind it. Ancient legends tell that the City of Taranto - Spartan City, part of Magna Grecia and great Greek colony in southern Italy, has been founded by God Taras, son of Poseidon. In the course of a sea voyage, Taras shipwrecked near the coast of Taranto and is saved by a dolphin. To thank Poseidon to be his help came in through that dolphin, Taras fund the City of Taranto.
The colors of the upper, made of red and blue premium suede and leather, are inspired from the City coat of arms. The two different blu of the heel represent the two seas of Taranto and the middle part in two gray tones represent the colors of the Dolphin, while the details in cognac leather and wood effect represent the colors of the materials of Sneakers76 store is made.
