Saucony‘s voracious appetite for food-themed sneakers is well-known. In the last year-plus, we’ve seen a Jazz “Carolina Mustard,” a Sneaker Politics Shadow 5000 “Cafe Du Monde,” a Dunkin’ Donuts Kinvara 10 and a Shadow 6000 “Saucomole.” Now, Saucony fans are in for yet another sweet treat, thanks to two fresh takes on the Aya dubbed the “Peaches & Cream” pack.
Pulling shades and accents from the sugary Southern delicacy, both the “Cream” and “Peaches” are constructed from a soft nylon shell that’s overlaid with supple suedes and leathers. “Cream” keeps things mostly light by mixing sail and soft tan tones with reddish-pink accents on the midfoot, heel, tongue and throat. Meanwhile, “Peaches” spruces up with a soft orange base hue. Tan is used on tongues, throats and heels, while a blue stripe runs from heel to midfoot. Both pairs also offer contrasting speckles on their white midsoles — pink on “Cream,” blue on “Peaches” — bold branding on the midfoot, heel and tongue, a sporty lace toggle and an icy blue translucent outsole.
It’s been a strong start to 2020 for Saucony, thanks to collaborations with Raised By Wolves (the Aya) and Bodega (the Grid Azura 2000), and this “Peaches & Cream” pack aims to keep the ball rolling into the summer months. Both pairs are available now via Sneaker Politics and the Saucony webstore, each priced at $90 USD.
