Sneaker76 x Saucony Shadow 5000 "Legend of the God Taras" 01.20.17
Italy based boutique Sneaker76 pays homage to the ancient ones of Spartan City, Taranto with the Saucony Shadow 5000 “Legend of the God Taras”. Legend has it Taras, son of Poseidon, was shipwrecked at sea and rescued by a dolphin sent by his father. Taras travelled to the south of Italy, thus discovering Tarentum (Taranto) which is where the mythological hero is still worshipped to this very day. The coat of arms emblem is embossed on the tongue in a fine leather. The upper is crafted from a premium suede, dyed in the Taranto flag colours of red & blue with leather detailing of either side. For superior shock absorption and traction, a comfortable EVA midsole unit is set in place with the XT-600 triangular lug rubber traction outsole.
The Sneaker76 x Saucony Shadow 5000 "Legend of the God Tara" drops Friday January 20th at our Yorkville location.
