END. x Saucony Shadow 5000 Burger Style
You don’t need to love burgers to rock this shoe although almost no one says no to that favorite American meal. A white shirt worn over maroon jeans will look good with this sneaker, or you can pair it with your favorite blue selvedge denim and a hoodie.
The END. x Saucony Shadow 5000 Burger is an outstanding rendition of a heritage Shadow 5000 running shoe. The food-inspired design is one-of-a-kind, and everything has been carefully put together to produce an excellent total package, from the premium nubuck and suede material to the burger logo on the tongue and the extra laces in condiment packaging.
END. x Saucony Shadow 5000 Burger History
The Shadow Original, which was released, in 1985 is one of the two core products of the Saucony brand—the other one is the Jazz—upon which many other models were built. This silhouette featured a bulkier build than the Jazz, had a TPU heel piece for support, breathable nylon mesh upper, and a soft EVA that provided superior cushioning.
Four years after the successful launch of the Shadow Original, Saucony released the Shadow 5000. It followed the same cut of the Shadow Original but with a redesigned midsole that allowed for more support for the movement of the foot. Additional panels were also added to the upper for improved hold and enhanced stability because of the TPU heel counter.
In 2014, the Shadow 5000 became the subject of a collaboration with END. The UK retailer transformed the shoe into a burger-inspired sneaker with most of the vamp being covered in a brown suede to symbolize the bread. Red hits on the sides of the shoe symbolize the meat and maybe a tomato or two while lettuce-green accents decorate the heel.
