The retro-runner resurgence lives on, as Saucony release their classic Shadow Original sneaker alongside UK-based brand Universal Works.

Launching on the 3rd October 2015 at OPUMO, the exclusive collaboration sees the creation of two ‘Workpack’ Saucony Shadow Original Sneakers – in a Dark Navy & Stone colourway.

Deriving as an entirely organic collaboration, both Saucony and Universal Works value small-scale production using high-quality materials in order to create the most wearable, versatile and premium products available. Which inevitably tells in the creation of the pair of Shadow Original sneakers which symbolise the collaboration- as the minimalist design represents both brand's blend of fashion-forward thinking with classic aesthetics.

The Saucony Shadow x Universal Works sneaker features signature soft suede uppers complimented with a vibrant argon blue heel cap that adds a touch of energetic colouring synonymous with the Saucony brand.

Down low, a thick white midsole and an off-white inner lining completes the workwear inspired makeover of the Shadow Original silhouette. With the clean and contemporary Navy and Stone colourways and subtle Universal Works x Saucony tongue patch branding; this latest retro-runner is more than just a nod to nostalgia.
