Saucony has aligned itself with the universe, finding greatness in the universe’s core elements — earth, air, wind, and fire. It drew a deep breath and started to look inwards at what it has to offer, and on a journey to self-discovery, it realized how well its sneakers — namely the Shadow 5000, Peregrine 11, Grid Azura 2000, and the Mad River 2 TR — adapt to the notions of astrology and the zodiac. Welcome, then, to Saucony’s “Astrotrail” pack.
Comprised of the four aforementioned sneakers, more specifically a Shadow 5000 “Air,” Peregrine 11 “Earth,” Grid Azura 2000 “Fire,” and Mad River 2 TR “Water,” the collection is positioned at the epicenter of discovery. Each is given a trail overhaul and is fitted with handy details and finishing touches that make the shoes perfect for being on the go in-and-around tough terrain, while as you look down upon your feet you’ll find moments of serenity thanks to the inclusion of zodiac motifs.
Each sneaker was designed with a different element in mind to provoke a different feeling or to result in a unique colorway that embodies earth, air, wind, or fire. The colorways are accentuated by a birthstone-colored zodiac symbol on the tongue of each pair, while outdoorsy elements such as a bungee speed lacing and speckled midsoles bring the whole aesthetic together.
The collection features a pair for all, whether you’re a Capricorn or an Aries, and is set to release on Saucony’s website on May 15. Prices will range between $110-$120 USD depending on the style. Take a closer look at the out-of-this-world pairs above.
