Alife is a brand and a store that will always be legendary in any self respecting streetwear head's list. When we got news back then that they will have a collaboration with Saucony, we were excited but we can never find a pair in our size. We kind of moved on and forgot about it.
Fast forward last October, we found a deadstock pair during the Saucony Originals Party for a steal price. We were excited as hell.
What we have here is the New York Knicks-like colorway. The colors just pop out, the leather and the suede- exceptional! And the extra colored laces don't hurt either!
It's basically a classic Jazz '91 silhouette placed on top of a Shadow 6000 midsole, the mesh uppers and the reflective 3M materials make it quite the standout. It's a pretty clean sneaker that deserves a spot in any three dot collector's closet.
The woven ALIFE® label on the tongue and the sockliners round out the whole package. Such a simple but impactful release, to some it may just look like a plain colored sneaker but to us, Alife is the bomb and we love the stuff that they do especially with collabs like this one! A perfect 10 in our book!
Now for the other colorway...
