This weekend Boston-based Saucony Originals will release their latest collaborative project which sees them partner with fellow Massachusetts brand Penfield on a series of trail-ready Shadow Originals with the 60/40 Pack.
The pack is named for Penfield’s windproof and water resistant 60/40 cotton-nylon material that is used throughout much of their collection. After raiding Penfield’s extensive fabric archive, the 60/40 fabric was specially selected as one that would compliment the mix of suede and mesh used on Saucony’s footwear as well as a material that would be able to withstand the more intense stitching required in footwear manufacture.
The resulting material combination gives the pack a fully winterised exterior, finished with rope laces and a D-ring lace loop to further accentuate the outdoors feel. The Shadow Original silhouette will be offered in 3 colours (Wheat, Khaki and Navy) with contrasting coloured branding and the Penfield woven label replacing the usual Saucony logo on the tongue.
All 3 pairs will release this Saturday November 29th at select stockists across the UK – including Attitude – and online from December 2nd. They will be priced at £95 and available in UK sizes 4-12.
