Saucony Originals continue to celebrate the fast approaching Summer months as they bring the tropical vibes in the vibrant “Bermuda” pack, inspired by the beaches of the idyllic Atlantic island.
In a market that is highly competitive and moves quickly in terms of design, it has become hard to really stand out from the pack and challenge the heavy hitters such as Nike and Adidas. Sharing a similar heritage to these running giants, Saucony have managed to maintain their relevance and continue to play a huge part in the retro running resurgence with their clever creative concepts that they use to rework some of their most coveted styles. Drawing inspiration and themes from unique ideas, at times unusual, and turning them into something highly wear-able is where Saucony really thrive. This has been seen in the hugely poplar ‘Burger’ collab with END. last year and more recently the scoops pack for the Summer, and the “Bermuda” pack continues this approach, drawing from a relevant, yet fairly unique idea and using the colour and material inspiration to give two classic silhouettes a weather appropriate refresh.
For those, like me, who haven’t been lucky enough to visit the island of Bermuda yet, it is renowned for its stunning pink sands, bright turquoise waters and unique culture, all of which have been channeled for the material and colour reworks of the signature Shadow 6000 and DXN Trainer. A true icon in marathon running history, the DXN Trainer surfaces for the “Bermuda” pack with a two-tone aqua blue application on the shoes upper, while the coveted Shadow 6000 silhouette features a turquoise base on its form fitting upper with black and purple overlays. Both styles feature perforated suede uppers which sit on top of a contrasting white midsole, with additional details including comfort enhancing padded collars and synthetic tongues.
The Saucony Originals “Bermuda” Pack will be available at select retailers including Urban Industry and The Chimp Store from the 22nd of May which just so happens to coincide with Bermuda day celebrations!
