Paying tribute to the classic Universal Monsters, Super 7 and Saucony have announced today a line of fun sneakers that are inspired by the likes of Frankenstein and the Mummy!
“Featuring Creature from the Black Lagoon, Frankenstein, The Bride of Frankenstein, and The Mummy, the classic Saucony Jazz Original has been reconstructed into a monster of its own!”
“The Super7 x Saucony Universal Monsters collection will launch Friday, May 21 at Noon PT exclusively at Super7.com, Saucony.com, and Super7’s two retail locations in San Francisco and San Diego. Available sizes range from Men’s 6-12 (Women’s 7.5-13.5). Retail price is $100.”
Here’s everything you need to know about each sneaker…
Creature from the Black Lagoon: “From the depths of the Amazonian jungle, these Creature from the Black Lagoon Saucony Jazz Original shoes feature a textured, scale-like material on both the toe box and heel cup, along with tonal green color blocking accented by red laces (just like Creature’s red lips). The outsoles are translucent swamp water green for a truly monstrous finishing touch.”
Frankenstein: “The Frankenstein shoes feature shades of monster green and jacket gray color blocking, with custom suture-like stitching holding each panel together on top of a black midsole.”
The Bride of Frankenstein: “Every monster needs its match! With pale green and ivory panels stitched together and the Bride of Frankenstein’s signature hairstyle embroidered across the heel cup, these shoes are more than the sum of their stitched up parts. These Saucony Jazz Original shoes really come to life when lightning strikes, with glow-in-the-dark laces and midsoles.”
The Mummy: “After thousands of years, the Mummy has been awakened, so it is time to run! These unique Saucony Jazz Original shoes inspired by the classic monster film feature a tonal white and gray palette with just a little blood red for accents. With a unique bandage-like fabric, feel free to wrap your feet in this pair of Mummy-inspired shoes!”
Super7 also details over on their website today, “Each shoe features the monster’s logo on a woven label on the tongue, “monster” in Japanese embroidered on the heel tab, a Super7 x Saucony custom sockliner, and comes packaged in a themed box.”
