Inspired by the Ichthyosaur, a roughly 250 million year old marine reptile that thrived during the Mesozoic era of geological time, Las Vegas-based boutique Feature has teamed up with Saucony for the Shadow 6000 "Living Fossil" in commemoration of the prehistoric creature, which is also Nevada's official state fossil. The "Beryl" colored upper and use of suede and nubuck bring a premium look while water-resistant panels offer a callback to the Ichthysosaur's living environment. Holographic inserts highlight Saucony's traditional three-dot pattern and the heel branding that shimmer when hit by light, a la the scales of a fish. Custom branding also hits the tongue and insole while a gradient finish on the midsole rounds things out.
The Feature x Saucony Shadow 6000 "Living Fossil" can be purchased in store and online. Grab your pair in person at 147 W 72nd ST in Manhattan or shop in your socks on our web store.
