UK retailer END. has teamed up with Saucony on the Shadow 5000 running shoe. This marks the second sneaker collaboration by the retailer in just a few months, having worked with Reebok on the Instapump Fury before. Taking inspiration from red wine for the Reebok shoe, the hamburger inspired the new Saucony sneaker. For this latest collaboration, they utilized a selection of top quality materials, with the upper executed in perforated nubuck and suede with touches of leather, teamed with dual branded insoles and a woven tongue label. The custom boxes take inspiration from traditional burger packaging and the traditional tissue paper has been swapped out for a bespoke gingham design. One of the most customizable meals on the planet, condiments and toppings are often a very personal choice, so for END.’s “Burger” additional laces come packaged in corresponding sealed and branded sauce sachets, allowing you to top off the store’s take on the Shadow 5000 however you’d like.
The Saucony x END. Shadow 5000 “Burger” sneaker will release exclusively at a launch party at 6 p.m. on Thursday, May 1 at End Hunting Co., followed by an online release on Saturday, May 3.
