F.O.T.B.: Saucony x BAIT Shadow Original “Cruel World 3 – Global Warming”

I was lucky once again and received the email to purchase the latest BAIT collaboration. This time it’s part 3 from their dope Saucony Original “Cruel World” series and what a banger it is. For me, this is probably their best saucony collaboration. Not saying that the others weren’t good, because they were, but this one here has some of the nicest mix of materials of the 3. Perfect for the coming cold weather. Unfortunately, I’m really caught up in some photo work and I’m in the process of changing around my work station, so I took these really quick photos for you to see. I focused on the details so you can have a better look of the materials. Materials like the premium leather, supple wolverine silk suede, and tiger heather textile which is my favorite accent on the shoe. You can see it on the quarter, heel, ankle lining and the back of the tongue. There’s also a 3M Saucony logo and a clear blue outsole.. As of late, BAIT has been pushing out a lot of good color-ways and make-ups; looking very forward to the adidas collab. Currently this is my favorite Saucony collaboration for 2014. Right next to ENDs Saucony Burger. Enjoy the images…

With only two days left before the online release of the Saucony x End Shadow 5000 “Burger”, I present you with an exclusive pictorial. In the same manner as END., I also decided to do a lifestyle shoot within the same vein. sQMunro and myself set up shop in Manhattan with a burger and fries and what you’ ll see is the end result of about an hour and a half of shooting. It was a lot of fun and I hope everyone enjoys it. Remember that the release is this coming Saturday, May 3rd online and for those on the other side of the pond, you’ll be treated today to a party for the in-store launch starting at 6pm. Good luck to everyone, have fun and stay safe. Enjoy the photos…

Release INFO: Saucony x End Shadow 5000 “Burger”


HypeBeastBurger_1

Burger time! No, not the video game, but the wearable and tasty shoe collaboration from END. A few days ago you received one sneak peek photo of the make-up. Today you are presented with 4 new images showcasing the silhouette of this Saucony Shadow 5000 (Two of those are exclusive to this post). In full view you can now see how the ‘Burger’ theme was designed into the layers of the shoe. Using premium materials from a perforated nubuck with suede leathers, END went to work with the inspiration and created something full of novelty. They even included a gum out-sole. Yeah, that accent FTW. What you don’t see here is the box that comes with extra laces sealed in condiment type packets and the tissue paper made from the table cloth above in the photo.

Sneek Peek: Saucony x End Shadow 5000 “Burger”


saucony end shadow 5000

I’ve always been a fan for telling stories with shoes. Something that’s been happening more often now and something that was more of a ‘Special Edition’ back in the day with footwear collaborations. Some have been terribly executed, boring, funny, weird, and very few were damn good and/or original. With that said and with very little of the shoe revealed here, this sneak peek into the End. Saucony Shadow 5000 “Burger” put a smile on my face. It was sparked by the simple idea of using a popular food to create a colorway. Though it’s only a glimpse of the shoe, you can already see how well the burger CW has been executed into the panels and layers that make up the silhouette…
