VHS tapes, man! One of the staples of my childhood entertainment. Disney movies, WWF matches, NBA on NBC recordings, all could be found on my home VHS tapes. Some of you may be too young to know what I’m talking about it, but for those who know, you know.
This collab between The Good Will Out and Saucony pays homage to the legendary VHS tapes. The Good Will Out x Saucony Shadow 5000 VHS references the video tape cassettes in a number of different ways. It starts off with a Black upper (just like a VHS tape) constructed out of suede, leather and mesh. The upper comes equipped with embroidered TV color test stripes on the heel and control button designs on the lateral side of the toe. Other unique features include the clear outsole representing the white noise of a TV which also houses the collaborative branding of the shoe. Additional branding hits include “TGWO” on the tongues and even more The Good Will Out tonal branding on the later side of the heel. Oh, and did you peep the VHSaucony hit on the heel? Nice!
Look for the The Good Will Out x Saucony Shadow 5000 VHS exclusively at TGWO on August 5th for the retail price of $150. Select customers will receive an original VHS tape of a classic movie from the ’80s to go along with the shoes and custom VCR shoe box.
