Saucony Revamps Your Dad’s Favorite Sneakers With Limited-Edition Collector’s Pack
The classic sneaker brand pays homage to the Jazz 81 and Shadow 6000 Sauconys with a new dual box.
You can’t literally step forward into the future without celebrating the past. That’s what Saucony is doing as it celebrates two iconic models in a new, never-before-seen dual pack commemorating milestone anniversaries. And in this case, it means these old-school kicks favored by your dad or favorite uncle are back in a big way.
While past Saucony releases have leaned into the fun (See: Saucony x Dunkin’ Donuts), this new launch is anything but a corny dad joke. The Saucony Collector’s Pack throws it all the way back to 40 years — in a nod to the iconic Jazz 81, and then leaps forward a decade to celebrate 30 years of the Shadow 6000.
Those milestones are worthy of being cherished, but that’s not all: Each sneaker is being sold in its inaugural colorways, both of which lean more subdued and timeless than garish and loud. Pause for a moment to dash out and get your pair: They’re available for a limited time starting today.
Best of all, both sneakers are sold in that special set for a very agreeable $300 price tag.
For two OG models that feel just as fresh now as they did decades ago, it’s a downright steal — perhaps you’ve been meaning to pick up a pair yourself after seeing your pops rocking Saucony in an old family photo album. There’s never been a better time to scoop up not one, but two pairs of retro-yet-downright-cool kicks.
And although the colorways might nod to the original stylings of each sneaker, the materials themselves have been upgraded for the 21st century, featuring contrasting hits of premium leather and a textured upper.
It’s a sharp, revamped approach to two classic sneakers, the kind of move that turns these into the sort of pair you could rock with a tailored, lightweight khaki cotton suit (rather than the stone wash jeans your dad might have worn with his Saucony sneakers “back in the day”).
If you’re having trouble choosing between your favorite pair, rest easy: If you’re lucky enough to snap up the Saucony Collector’s Pack, you’re getting both sets of stylish sneakers — they can’t be bought separately.
And if you’re feeling generous, it’s the perfect sort of “one for you, one for me” gift — get a pair for yourself, and gift a pair to your dad for an added dose of nostalgia. Just like days gone by, it’s a pair of dependable sneakers anyone can appreciate, no matter how long it’s been since you’ve rocked Saucony.
