So far as sneakers are concerned, there are some brands that are synonymous with awesome collaborations and Sneaker Politics are chief amongst them. Their latest offering sees them joining forces with both Saucony and Cafe Du Monde for these excellent looking Shadow 5000 Sneakers which are eye-catching in the extreme and will only be released in limited numbers so move quickly if you want to get your hands on a pair.
The Sneaker Politics x Saucony x Cafe Du Monde Shadow 5000 Sneakers have a mighty reasonable price tag of $120 and they have a number of design features which help tie them to the brands involved in the collaboration. These super cool sneakers sees Sneaker Politics team up with Saucony to deliver a highly unusual, special edition Shadow 5000 which, as the name suggests, takes its design inspiration from none other than the world famous, Café De Monde.
Classy Cafe Vibes
Cafe Du Mond isn’t just an open-air coffee shop, it is also a monument for New Orleans and the many tourists that visit each and every year. What a better way to celebrate the city’s rich history than with an 1862 city staple, the beignet. The Shadow 5000 “Beignet Brown” colorway is a classic running shoe that mimics the French-style donuts with a three-tone brown suede leather and mesh upper adorned with white flecks to mimic dashes of powdered sugar atop the fried dough desserts.
The Sneaker Politics x Saucony x Cafe Du Monde Shadow 5000 Sneakers ($120) have a co-branded tongue and particularly striking green and white outsoles which are ideal for paying respect to colours of Café Du Monde’s patio overhangs. Along with the pair releasing to the public, there’s also an even more limited “Powdered Sugar” colour way hitting the digital shelves of Sneaker Politics.
This style will be limited to a mere 157 pair to pay homage to the 157 years that Cafe Du Monde has been in operation. They will be available at Sneaker Politic’s NOLA launch. Each pair will come packaged in a custom box that mimics the famous beignet mix with special instructions on how to make your own tasty treats at home. To accompany this release, Sneaker Politics have assembled a full cut and sew apparel collection while also partnering with Rokit and Stance for a capsule collection featuring t-shirts, socks and much more.
