Coming Soon: Saucony x Solebox Shadow 5000 “Grey Devil”


As the date draws near the release of Solebox’s “Grey Devil” collaboration with Saucony, some great photos of the shoe are exposed. If you’ve kept up with the images since October 2011, then you would have noticed a change that occurred to the upper of the shoe. It has changed from a suede treatment, to a leather dress. This in my opinion looks better in the sense that it gives the silhouette a more fitting separation from black to grey. It also makes the shoe a bit bolder and more premium with this overall esthetic. Take note that the shoe is now slated for an August drop of this year with a price tag of 100 EURO ( $125.00 or so). Unfortunately there is no actual day given for the launch or if they will make it to the Solebox online store. Until that INFO gets released, enjoy the great photos by my homie L.Patrick Simensen…

News Break: ASICS x Solebox Gel Pack Has Been Dropped


A little over a week ago I posted an image of the ASICS x Solebox Gel pack that many have been wondering about. Rumors have been out and about the cancellation of this entire pack. Though I knew about it, I waited for Solebox to officially come out and state if the rumor would be true and possibly give us an explanation as to why they dropped the set. Well it looks like the truth is finally out. With no words in their articles, Solebox posted photos of both color-ways from their ASICS collab with the title reading “Dropped”. Dropped can mean a couple of things, but I’ll go out on a limb here and say they got cancelled. Though there is no explanation as to what may have caused this, I’ll say that quantity may have been an issue or ‘THE’ issue. Also, another shoe comes into light in the form of a Onitsuka Tiger. This makes the set move from two to three shoes…

Coming Soon: Saucony x Solebox Shadow 5000 “Pink and Grey Devil” pack


As the weeks wind down, we get closer and closer to Saucony x Solebox Shadow 5000 “Pink and Grey Devil” pack release. To further remind us that the launch will soon be upon us, Solebox releases yet another teaser image of the “Pink Devil”. The pair that most likely be the most sought after of the two. If you know Solebox’s history with this type of color-blocking, than you already know why I said it (In case you don’t. They were the originators of it). Especially the people that own the previous New Balance Devils. This just makes that collection more complete. But, lets not stray away and forget about the “Grey Devil“. That’s no sleeper for sure. Enjoy the teaser image until further news is known…
