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…

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…

Coming Soon: Saucony x Hanon Shadow Master “The Midnight Runner”


The lads in Aberdeen are back and introducing an interesting shoe dubbed, “The Midnight Runner”. Most will remember the counter part pair, the original Shadow Master released this past February. A very well received shoe by fans worldwide and this no doubt will follow in that same path. The make-up is identical to the OG Shadow Master. You’ll get beautiful pigskin suede, smooth perforated leather, 3 pairs of laces, a dust bag, 3M accents and the Saucony Shadow 5000 mid-sole unit. Added to the package this time around is the inclusion of special edition hooped trainer socks. The colorway is also similar to the original stealthy orange, grey and black. This time Hanon uses some deep and rich blues with a touch of black to offset the colors and make them pop. Here the shoes dawn a white lace setup, but I bet the black pair will make these a bit stealthier overall….

Release INFO: Saucony x Solebox Shadow 5000 “Three Brothers”

UPDATED: 8.13.11 – Hikmet said that the shoes will release online, but only after the store release. Get them at Solebox. Good luck!

Remembering the year when Solebox’s Saucony Shadown 6000 was released, I always wondered and hoped Hikmet would design a Shadow 5000. Back in May of this year, Solebox released some images of not only one, but three pairs of the Shadow 5000 model dubbed, Three Brothers. Four months later, we finally have some release INFO to share with you…
