Following the success of last years Saucony x Letterman Grid 9000 release, the Boston based heritage brand are back at it again with another sublime effort, this time on the globally beloved '89 born Shadow 5000 profile. This second iteration in the Letterman line combines a mixture of textures across the upper, inspired by the Letterman style Varsity jackets, which have affirmed a huge place in American fashion, using premium materials and clean paneling for a plush, unmissable release.
From the offset, the Letterman II radiates premium vibes. From the bottom, the gum outsole gives off quite the statement, setting the rest of the sneaker up. On the uppers, the combination of soft touch wool and leathers fits the classic Shadow 5000 form, a form sneaker heads around the world have come to know and love for its street-ready aesthetic. The padded tongue features a quilted stitch aesthetic, and adorns a unique wool 'S', meeting the 'Varsity' vibe the sneaker is designed to give off, finally, the shoe comes with special black and grey rope laces, sealing the deal for this beautiful release sneaker.
Oh, and the inner lining comes thermally insulated with plush felt materialisation for warmth and comfort.
