Extra Butter x Saucony Shadow 6000 “Moon Walker”.

by Henrik Buzzi

The inspiration for these kicks came from the early connection Saucony had with NASA. They started with a sport micro-mesh base, as fitted on all classic Saucony runner during the same era.  The overlay dons a light grey 210 Denier, durable nylon oxford, reminiscent of NASA’s original silvery space suits. A topographic lunar landscape pattern graces the mudguard and heel wrap of the silhouette, while the midsole dons a starry black and white speckle.  The sheen reflective properties of the tongue label and heel tab evoke the mirror-like visors astronauts sport to protect themselves from the harsh UV rays of the sun. The overall subtle grayscale palette is given accent with a reflective Saucony river logo panel and an optional set of reflective laces.  And finally, a translucent ice sole provides a see-through into more of the lunar pattern, reminding us wherever we go, our potential is far great. Releases online on the 2nd of June.
