In June 2015, Atlanta-based boutique Epitome partnered up with Saucony to create a crisp iteration of the coveted Shadow 5000 silhouette. Dubbed the “Righteous One,” the bespoke runner was wrapped in suede and leather alongside various shades of turquoise embellished across the model. The pair was an homage to a 65-foot landmark in Atlanta, Georgia called the Big Fish. For this latest rendition, the boutique enlisted sneaker customizer Jake Danklefs to swap the Shadow 5000’s traditional sole with an adidas Ultra BOOST sole. The trade-off still sees hints of white and gold accents sprinkled on the icy white midsole as well as co-branding on the tongue and back heel.
