The 'Moonwalker' Shadow 6000 is not only a nod to human exploration, but is symbolic of the ultimate destination. The shoe starts with a sport micro-mesh base, which is aided by a light grey 210 Denier, durable nylon oxford, reminiscent of NASA’s original silver space suits. A topographic lunar landscape graphic adorns the mudguard and heel wrap, while a starry black and white speckle has been applied to the midsole. The tongue label and heel feature a reflective sheen reminiscent of the mirror-like visors worn by astronauts. Reflective detailing also pops off the Saucony river logo and laces. Below, a translucent outsole that reveals more of the lunar pattern.
You’ll be able to get your hands on the ‘Moonwalker’ Shadow 6000 on Saturday, May 31 exclusively at both Extra Butter’s NYC locations. An online release will follow on Monday, June 2 at 7:00 p.m. EST at extrabutterny.com.
