With 5 months passing since we caught a preview of the sneakers and a suspected release date in July coming and going without any further updates since, it started to look as if Sole Boutique’s partnership with Saucony on the Shadow 5000 was doomed to never release. Thankfully though, the San Antonio, Texas, based retailer has finally received the sneakers and have arranged for an upcoming release party. Premium suede and breathable mesh build the base of the Shadow 5000 in a combo of Black and Grey with Lime Green accenting the sneakers in the form of contrast stitching throughout the upper, a splatter pattern on the midsole and tint on the translucent outsole. The shops signature bear logo is etched in a tonal repeating pattern on the Black suede paneling and beneath Saucony’s standard branding on the tongue tag is Sole Boutique’s team silhouette. The sneakers are officially set to release in a limited run of 100 pairs on September 18th, 2010, during Sole Boutique’s release party which will be hosted from 6-9p.m..
