Saucony Jazz 4000: Vintage sneaker with modern comfort

Saucony Jazz is one of the most popular profiles in the brand's arsenal. It displays a classic, simple, and adaptable style, which allows it to be one of the favorite base models of various collaborations and experimentations. 

Adding another member to the impressive Jazz's lineup is the Jazz 4000. This running-inspired sneaker updated the 80s vintage running model with a 90s tech and look.

What can one expect from the Saucony Jazz 4000?

There are a few updated features found on the Saucony 4000. Instead of using the conventional nylon found on its ancestor, this model uses mesh and synthetic suede for better breathability. To add a pop of hue, Saucony used a colorful stripe design on the side. And to further enhance its retro vibe, this sneaker has 90-appropriate "Jazz" embroidery on its heel.

Down below, the brand used EVA cushioning for lightweight, soft comfort. Meanwhile, the rubber outsole has a triangular pattern that helps you propel to your destination without slipping. And to complete the retro look, an oversized Saucony branding is found on the sole.
