A fishing themed collaboration between Saucony and West NYC might sound familiar. It is. Back in September, the pair teamed up on a salt water fishing themed edition of the Shadow 90.
This time around, the Shadow 6000 gets its own fishing treatment. While the saltwater experience is all about the being on the deck of a boat in the open ocean, the freshwater version of the Shadow 6000 encapsulates a more total outdoor experience.
The upper features two different brown leathers, tumbled nubuck on the upper and oiled suede on the side panel. These shades of brown not only represent the varied terrain to be traversed en route to a favorite fishing spot, but the classic garments and footwear that any traditionally-minded outdoorsman would be decked out in. These browns contrast with the athletically inclined white perforated leather and black accents.
The aqua details on the heel, tongue, and side provide the finishing touch, as they perfectly capture the serene, crystalline surface of fresh water.
