We are proud to announce that we have teamed up with Saucony to release a special edition Shadow 5000 inspired by none other than the world famous, Café De Monde. Not only is it an open-air coffee shop, but it’s a monument for the city and the many tourists that visit each and every year. What a better way to celebrate New Orleans’ 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 co-branded tongue and vibrant green and white outsoles play respect to colors of Café Du Monde’s patio overhangs. Along with the pair releasing to the public, there’s also an even more limited “Powdered Sugar” colorway. This style will be limited to 157 pair to pay homage to the 157 years that Cafe Du Monde has been open. They will be available at our NOLA launch this weekend. Each pair comes 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, we 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. This Saturday 06/22/19 we will have an in-store release EXCLUSIVELY at our New Orleans location. (216 Chartres St.) We will also have a party at 30° 90° from 5pm-9pm. The address for the party is 520 Frenchmen St, New Orleans, LA 70116. It's open to anyone 18 and over. Stay tuned as more photos and information will be released in the coming days. Ça C’est Bon!
