BAU x The Distinct Life x Saucony Shadow 5000 “NOVEM” Pack
This weekend, a special, triple-branded two-shoe collection is releasing.

The BAU x The Distinct Life x Saucony Shadow 5000 “NOVEM” Pack has yielded two sneakers that each represent the two designers’ individual brands and both shoes are set to release this weekend, on 10/12, at UBIQ Walnut, 9AM online and 10PM in store.
Bodega x Saucony Elite Shadow 6000 “African Print” Pack
Boston-based retailer Bodega’s newest addition to its ongoing collaboration with Saucony Elite turns up in the build of the Shadow 6000 silhouette, in not one, but two unique print colorways. These special-edition Saucony fuses the uppers of a Shadow 6000 to the off-white midsole of a Shadow 5000, mixing full-grain premium suede and graphic pattern nylon throughout its upper.
WEST NYC x Saucony Shadow 5000 “Tequila Sunrise”
Bummed that summer’s over? Maybe the WEST NYC x Saucony Shadow 5000 “Tequila Sunrise” will help you reminisce in the coming Fall season. WEST NYC’s partnership with Saucony uses the classic early 1990′s classic silhouette, the Shadow 5000 to create a colorful farewell sneaker which pays homage to the summertime, tequila-filled cocktail by way of gradient side panels. Drawing inspiration from long nights that carry over into early mornings, the combination of teal, grey and black make up the majority of the upper to represent the night sky, with black and orange gradient symbolize the coming of dawn, and the insole is designed like the scales on a worm that you might find in a tequila bottle.

24 Kilates x Saucony “Mar y Montaña” Pack
The guys behind Barcelona sneaker boutique 24 Kilates have whipped up a very special “Mar y Montaña” pack with Saucony. Using the Shadow Original silhouette as a base, the pack borrows its color palette from the world-famous paellas of Spain’s Catalan region, which combines ingredients from the ocean and highlands. “Montaña” utilizes a brown/grey/cream mountain-inspired colorway while “Mar” dons a seafaring navy/olive/cream profile – each sporting custom graphic tongue branding and “24 KILATES” embroidered along the lateral suede mudguard. Garnished with multiple sets of laces, the palatable 24 Kilates’ “Mar y Montaña” pack delivers in both presentation and flavor.
The Mar (Sea) Shadow Original will be sold exclusively online at UBIQlife.com at 10AM EST this Saturday 7/27, while the Montaña (Mountain) can be purchased in-store at UBIQ Walnut. Both are available for $110.

This is a real treat for runners and collectors everywhere. Just to get the sneakers alone would suffice… but wait, there’s more – this release comes as a gift pack! The “Midnight Runners” comes with a black sneaker bag with the Hanon logo as well as a pair of matching purple/blue socks. Available now at UBIQ Walnut in limited quantities.
