It’s reissued in OG version and sits at the center of the brand’s AW21 collection.
Originally designed in 1991 for long-distance runners looking for the right balance of heel stability, flexibility and forefoot cushioning, theSHADOW 6000 introduced an innovative sole unit with the Vertical Ionic Pillars (VIP) system. It quickly became one of the best performing and most comfortable silhouettes of its time.

As Paolo Petri, Saucony’s Global Director of Product and Merchandising, explained, « Collaborations and special projects will play an important role in bringing the SHADOW 6000 back to light this year ».
