Saucony collaborations, especially bespoke Shadow 5000 sneakers, are a little less common nowadays than they were several years ago, but that just makes quality drops that much more special. Feature is gearing up to keep the premium footwear coming, with a special Shadow 5000 “Dreamland” collaboration.
Encompassing a sneaker and apparel collection, the “Dreamland” collaboration sees the Las Vegas-based boutique channeling sci-fi secrecy by way of top-shelf materials and light-sensitive details. The Shadow 5000 itself sports perforated nubuck, tumbled leather and suede in muted shades, offset by bold patent leather panels, selective 3M hits and glow-in-the-dark accents, with subtle touches including a heatmap footbed and an iridescent heel window with embossed “Feature” logo.
Joining the special silhouette is an array of clothing executed in similar tones and with complementary properties. For instance, the “Greetings” tee sports a glow-in-the-dark graphic, while the matching tote is wrapped in shiny PVC. 3M informs the logo on a crewneck, while a bomber jacket and hoodie keep things simple with stylized logos and understated tones, placing the emphasis upon the statement sneaker.
Expect the Saucony Shadow 5000 “Dreamland” and accompanying wearables to launch on October 18 at an in-store launch party before dropping on Feature’s site October 19.
Most recently, 24 Kilates joined Saucony for the collaborative Grid SD “La Victoria.”
