Every now and then we feature a product in a Friday sales roundup that is notable enough to get its own shout-out on Monday (if there are enough sizes left, of course). This pair of Saucony sneakers is one such item. Released in 1985, the Shadow has been a “staple silhouette in Saucony history,” according to the brand, and recently, Outside magazine deemed it the Best Everyday Shoe. “They have just enough style to stand out, but not so much as to be obnoxious,” wrote Jakob Schiller. And as Strategist writer Liza Corsillo wrote, back when she worked at GQ, it’s also “the perfect weekend shoe, with a touch of old school nerd updated to show you use a wee little spoon when doling out irony.” We think it also projects Cool Dad Without Trying Too Hard vibes. Right now, the Shadow (also available in an autumnal brown) is an additional 30 percent off its sale price thanks to a “summer sneaker sale” at Huckberry.
The Strategist is designed to surface the most useful, expert recommendations for things to buy across the vast e-commerce landscape. Some of our latest conquests include the best acne treatments, rolling luggage, pillows for side sleepers, natural anxiety remedies, and bath towels. We update links when possible, but note that deals can expire and all prices are subject to change.
