Following our preview of the END. x Saucony Shadow 5000 “Burger,” we take a closer look at the latest collaboration between the UK retailer and American footwear manufacturer. Inspired by the classic ingredients of a hamburger, the resulting sneaker features a range of top-notch materials, with the upper comprised of perforated nubuck and suede with touches of leather, set against dual branded insoles and a woven tongue label. The theme of the collaboration carries on through the packaging with the aesthetics of traditional burger packaging, while the classic tissue paper has been swapped out for a bespoke gingham design. The reference to condiments and toppings come in the form of additional laces, which are packaged in corresponding sealed and branded sauce packets.
