It was two years in the making, but it looks like the first drop of the Saucony Originals 2017 Originators Only Project will finally be releasing later on this week. For those not too familiar with the project, this global social campaign brought together sneaker YouTubers to represent the new generations. These YouTubers, who include guys such as Yoanty, T-Blake and SneakerHeadInTheBay were all given the opportunity to collab with Saucony to release their very own sneaker.
The first drop of the Saucony Originals 2017 Originators Only Project will include the shoe of Sneaker Shouts, Yoanty Kicks, Tyler J. Blake, Tony D, and SneakerHeadInTheBay.
Sneaker Shouts’s sneaker brings his fans back to his Portuguese roots as metallic, Portuguese Gold on a charcoal Grey suede and Off-White premium nubuck create the look. The shoe is also given Gold specks on the midsole for some added oomph. Yoanty’s “The Green Monster” pays homage to his home city of Boston and to his love for Red Sox games at Fenway Park. Tyler J. Blake presents a Triple White sneaker that comes with permanent markers for his supporters to customize their own shoe. Tony D designs a “Tony The Tiger” colorway which consists of bold Black specks splattered on the Orange base. SneakerHeadInTheBay pays tribute to the Bay Area by adding Gold and Burgundy accents to a soft Black nubuck upper. The outsole comes with an image of the Golden Gate bridge.
The first drop of the 2017 Originators Only project will be limited to 100 sneakers per Originator priced at $120 each. Want a pair? Pick them on August 11th at 12pm EST exclusively at saucony.com.
