Inspired by the iconic Café Du Monde in New Orleans, Sneaker Politics has worked alongside Saucony to drop a Shadow 5000 colourway paying homage to the city’s most famous open-air coffee shop.
With tones reminiscent of the beignet - New Orleans’ staple French-style donut - the 'Beignet Brown' features a three-tone brown suede leather and mesh upper, detailed with white flecks mimicking the powdered sugar sitting atop the delicacy. The upper is coupled with a white tongue and midsole completed by a dash of green on the tongue’s branding and outsole - a homage to the Café Du Monde’s patio overhangs.
The classic colour theme extends into the insole with green and white stripes paired with a solid brown by the heel. Coming with the sneakers are two sets of laces in green and white, as well as a specially designed vintage-themed shoe box.
The Politics x Saucony 'Cafe Du Monde' drops this Saturday 10 August for the retail price of R2499 exclusively to Shelflife CPT and JHB via first come first served. JHB at 9am, CPT at 10am.
Sizes: UK6, UK7, UK8, UK9, UK10.
