Saucony Originals Veg-Tan Pack

Creating a premium product, that will tell a story is always at the forefront of our minds when creating new product at Saucony Originals. Every once in a while the answer to the question of “how do we create something special?” is simpler than we could imagine. Veg-Tan

Saucony is releasing some very nice kicks… but in this pic below those hairy as legs popping out… not a good look. Seriously, the veg tan movement seems to be a trend that is possibly moving on. Every company has jumped in the water to produce a veg tan. Why would I take the time to write anything about this release if that’s the case?

PRICE

Saucony dropped what I thought was the Shoe of the Year in the Saucony Bricks.  That shoe retailed for 120.00. When Nike dropped it’s Pinnacle Air Jordan 1 in Vachetta it was 400.00 just to compare. Granted the Retro 1 arrived with gold plated accents, but this shoe is a far superior model in terms of comfort and the idea of producing a hybrid utilizing classic running cushioning is on trend and makes for another solid release from Saucony. I like it a lot and I say at 120… Collect It.
