Bodega x Saucony Originals Shadow 5000JP & Hangtime


This drop includes a dope Saucony and Bodega collaboration, and see’s an interesting Saucony heritage basketball sneaker brought up to date.

First I will start with the Bodega collab. Bringing the 5000JP to our shores, this runner is usually only found on the other side of the world exclusively in Japan. Luckily for us, Saucony and Boston’s Bodega have brought this great runner to a select few accounts outside of Japan. The colours are so rich on this collaboration, coming in the choice of either blue/grey, red and blue. Premium suede and mesh combine on the upper with an added crispy white midsole and gum outsole to make for a certified banger.

The ‘Hangtime’ (not part of the Bodega collaboration), has the heritage basketball vibe on lock. They have appeal to fans of the more classic basketball silhouettes out there, coming in simple colour-ups, again using rich colours and suede to great effect. The burgunday, navy and green (I’m partial, being a C’s fan) are all stand out make-ups.

Some serious footwear from Saucony, all available from Foot Patrol now.
