Saucony’s Aya sneaker first hit the market in 1994 as one of the brand’s proprietary running options, so it’s only fitting that the retro sneaker will be getting its revival as the ’90s trend of today continues to infiltrate the industry.
The Aya — which translates to “run swiftly” — features a lightweight lowtop silhouette and a paneled construction along the upper, which is crafted of mesh and leather. For the upcoming release, purple underlays are pitted against bright orange details, including the Saucony stripe on the side panel, the laces and the collar lining. White overlays on the toecap and back heel give it a neutral touch, while speckled details on the midsole offer a subtle, paint-splattered effect. A colorblocked outsole finishes it off.
