Saucony Jazz O Denim History

The DNA of the Saucony Jazz O Denim, from the name itself, is from the Saucony Jazz Original, which was originally released in 1981. The shoe was born from the partnership between the Saucony brand and podiatrist known as Frank Santopietro. Since its first release, the Saucony Jazz Original became one of the brand’s iconic shoes.

Throughout the years, the Jazz Original has proven its timeless style. The silhouette has encountered and witnessed some amazing iterations and collaborations as well. One of these iterations is giving the model a fresh new look by covering the upper with a denim design and thus the birth of the Saucony Jazz O Denim.

The Saucony Jazz O Denim was released in July 2016 in three variations of its new denim upper. The first colorway showcases a dark denim on its heel cap and on its toe while a lighter tone covers the rest of the upper. A gold stitching complements the design. The second colorway comes in a darker approach of denim that covers most of the upper except the toe and heel which is in a rather lighter tone.

The third iteration on the colorway of the Saucony Jazz O Denim features a lighter tone on the denim upper. An ecru denim covers the upper and a washed denim covers the heel and toe of the shoe. All of the three colorways sit atop the white midsole freckled with some blue detailing.

With fresh look with an undeniable style, the Saucony Jazz O Denim provides the people a variety of choices that suits their taste.
