The Irish Coffee seems like something that would have been around forever, or at least since coffee, whiskey, and mugs first arrived in the same place, but the venerable cocktail was conceived of comparatively recently, in the mid twentieth century. Despite its late start, the combination of coffee, cream, and Irish whiskey is a staple of cold, winter nights.
Saucony’s Shadow 6000 is the perfect shoe for an homage to the Irish Coffee. Despite only dating back to 1991, this chunky, tech running silhouette feels like an eternal fixture where running shoes are concerned. The Irish Coffee pack features monochromatic, suede uppers in black, cream, and whiskey colorways, each one a respective component of the famous drink.
The original tech design combined with the lush suede gives these Shadow 6000s a rich effect, that convincingly emulates the dense colors that make up an Irish Coffee, as viewed through one of the clear mugs they are served in. This winter, don’t head back into the cold without tying one on.
