We have finally started to see some sun and warmth and last weekend I had my first 99 Flake this year! According to my radar, that means summer is well and truly on it's way, but it’s definitely been a long, cold snowy wait. I'm putting my Astoria boots and Siberian Parka coat to the back of my wardrobe and getting use of my shorts and dresses once again! The upcoming Saucony Originals G9 "Scoops" pack is inspired by these warmer temperatures we've been yearning for and some of our favourite ice cream flavours. These are an essential summer sneaker!
The Saucony Originals G9 “Scoops” pack is available in two silhouettes of Saucony’s most celebrated heritage styles: the G9 Shadow 5 and G9 Shadow 6. The silhouettes pair the sole unit of Saucony’s Grid 9000 with uppers from the Shadow 5000 and 6000. This beautiful hybrid experiment was first unveiled in 2012 with Sauconcy's collaboration with Boston based boutique Bodega.
The first of the two to release, is the he G9 Shadow 6. Featuring buttery suede and mouthwatering mint and dark chocolate chip colors that base the shoe. As a subtle finishing detail, the midsole has been sprinkled with dark chocolate chip speckles, and wrapped up with that ever tasty gum rubber outsole. This colourway fully melts my heart! The G9 Shadow 6 Mint Chocolate Chip will be available from tomorrow, May 1st online in very limited quantities. Other retailers include Well Gosh, Size? and Footpatrol.
