Saucony’s influences have come from some of the most surprising of places, as they’ve crafted releases dedicated to everything from burgers to fried chicken. The footwear brand is even borrowing a little inspiration from everyone’s favorite black-and-white colorway, presenting a Shadow 6000 that celebrates a different kind of panda.
As its namesake suggests, the Saucony Shadow 6000 “Raccoon” directly nods to the humble trash panda. And the homage doesn’t just stop at color, as several parts have also been reupholstered with a faux fur. The pelt of the river logo and upper heel, for starters, are done up in black, while the paneling along the lowermost sections of the shoe mirror the striped tail signature to the animal. Hairy suedes and mesh inserts then round out the pair in tones complementary to the aforementioned fixtures.
Boxed up in packaging covered with raccoon graphics, this Saucony Shadow 6000 is slated to hit retailers like AFEW on October 6th. For more details as well as a closer look at the colorway, keep scrolling.
Speaking of pandas, the Nike Dunk Low Panda is reportedly restocking again at the end of the month.
