Independent German sneaker boutique Acribik has teamed up with Saucony‘s Saucony Originals arm for its first ever footwear collaboration: a new “Tech Noir” makeup of the classic Azura. Featuring shimmering accents and accompanied by a lookbook that seems to be heavily inspired by ’80s club culture plus Miami Vice aesthetics, the “Tech Noir” is full of retro flair and special details.
The upper’s most notable piece is the mudguard, which features a soft gradient fade that combines blue, purple and pink. This embellishment is replicated on the rear half of the midsole and a low-hanging midfoot overlay, which also supplies embroidered Azura branded details. The rest of the upper consists of classic black and white meshes and leathers, with the look rounded off by a co-branded Acribik and Saucony hit on the heel. The “Tech Noir” also comes packaged in a special box — and Acribik even tapped Berlin-based DJ duo Andhim to produce a special soundtrack for the sneaker, which can be heard in the video below.
Expect the Acribik x Saucony Azura “Tech Noir” to release on the Acribik webstore come June 12, then receive a global drop on June 26. There’s also a friends and family “Miami White” edition that’s limited to a scant 150 pairs.
