Another shoe I foolishly slept on. I personally prefer the contrasting make up of this one from the pack. I really like the contrast of the poppy red against the black/grey, and the subtle but effective use of the speckle on the mudguard sections instead of the sole is a really nice touch.
I bought the Saucony Shadow 6000 Kit Kats on a bit of whim, but didn’t wear them for ages as they just didn’t sit right with me. One day I was going through some boxes and took a long hard look at them, trying to decide whether to sell them on or not…..it dawned on me that they would look a lot better if some of the brown accents were changed to black, so, with nothing to lose I grabbed a sharpie and went to work.
I feel a bit of a fake calling these a custom, having seen the quality and skill of people like Benji Blunt and Ghettrocentricity….hence the reason I call them more of a tweak.
ONLY ONE MORE EXTRA SHOT
So….after doing a few bits around the unit last I was still hankering for something to do. After a few minutes of pondering I remembered that I wanted to make a slight change to my Kit Kat Saucony Shadow 6000s….the brown stripey bits inbetween the upper and the midsole always bugged me so I decided to paint them solid brown. After hunting around for a few minutes I couldn’t find brown so I decided to go with black. I then decided to do the form stripe (if that’s what it’s called)……then the brown lace eyelet and mesh on the heel were bugging me as they were still brown, so they had to be changed…..a quick lace flip over to black and I was done.
All in all, I’m quite pleased how they came out, although I am now thinking of making the toe box mesh black as well, just to even it out a little more….
