Footwear Brand Incorporates Hiking Heritage
Footwear label Saucony Originals has teamed up with outdoors specialist Penfield on a new collaborative collection.
The two American names have joined forced for autumn/winter 2014 to rework Saucony Originals’ Shadow Original trainer.
Inspired by Penfield’s hiking heritage, the collaboration offers the style in three new colour combinations, including purple and brown, tan and navy blue, and electric and midnight blue.
Delving into Penfield’s garment archives and fabric library for the practical details, the brands have used a 60/40 material – part cotton, part nylon – for the upper, coated in Teflon and finished with suede panel detailing.
The addition of hiking boot lace loops and climbing-inspired laces complete the style, which also has Penfield’s mountain branding applied to the tongue tab.
The Saucony Originals x Penfield 60/40 Trainer Pack is available at select Saucony Originals retailers and at the brand’s webstore now, priced at £95 per pair.
