Never ones to settle nor coast, both Frank the Butcher and Rick Williams are two individuals who continue to push their own creative boundaries. As Frank the Butcher has been rapidly expanding his BAU/Business as Usual Imprint and Rick Williams his The Distinct Life, the longtime duo realign, this time with a collaborative Saucony Shadow 5000 footwear capsule. Branded as the “NOVEM” Pack which is a nod to the duo’s design collective name, the collection will debut in two unique colorways that each represent the two brands respectively.
Williams’s The Distinct Life execution boasts a predominantly navy blue and grey premium suede and leather upper while the BAU iteration takes a supple tan suede and ripstop nylon route. Both shoes pull on a similar red accent hue to tie the two together. The “NOVEM” pack will be available soon in limited quantities at top tier Saucony accounts and will also launch Saturday, October 5 at 3 p.m. at Burn Rubber and midnight on www.BurnRubberDetroit.com.
