WEST NYC has done some excellent collaborations in the past and its latest team up, with Saucony, has produced an interesting result. An ode to the great outdoors, the WEST NYC x Saucony Shadow 6000 “Fresh Water / Fisherman’s Journey” was originally meant for 2015 debut. Now, it’s finally about to drop.
Here’s all the information from WEST NYC:
West NYC is excited to introduce the new Saucony Shadow 6000 “Fresh Water” edition. The latest version features colors, hues and textures specific to the great outdoors. WEST NYC pulled out all the stops to create the ultimate outdoor hiking and fishing experience. We bring an outdoor color palate scheme and material story that is unique to a sneaker. The upper features two different brown leathers to capture the various terrain one encounters when hiking to their respective fishing hole. Brown premium tumbled nubuck is used on the wrap mimicking the rugged terrain one encounters when hiking to their fishing spot. This contrasts sharply with the white perforated leather used on the toe and side of the shoe for an eye catching look. For a finishing touch, we employed a brown oiled suede on the side panel which mirrors the easy terrain surrounding your fishing hole. The aqua color speaks softly to the clean fresh water you find in lake. Although fresh water is not a true aqua color, it is how we imagine it to be on a sunny serene day.
Grip tape on the toe, heel and logo represent “no skids” found on a boat. The insole is produced from the same natural cork you find on the handle wrap of a fishing rod. The cork provides super grip on a rod handle. It is the perfect compliment for a shoe’s innersole. This unique shoe was originally themed for freshwater fishing and hiking. The Fresh Water edition also speaks to a famous Chinese proverb dear to my heart. “GIVE a man a fish and you feed him for a day. TEACH a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime”
This exclusive style was originally conceived for a 2015 debut. In an effort to develop the ultimate outdoor sneaker look, the WEST NYC team continued to work this project to bring a special experience to our loyal customers……. because you deserve it. The Fresh Edition will launch on March 26. Thank you for your continued support.
Available in sizes 7-13 for $140, the shoe lands this Saturday. What do you think of the theme and execution of this latest WEST NYC x Saucony project? Sound off in the comments below.
