Named after the Saucony Creek that flows past the brand's original Kutztown, Pennsylvania, factory, the venerable footwear company (now based in Boston) has been making cool athletic shoes since 1898. Take this slimmed-down version of a 1985 reissue—not only does it have a little old-school flavor, but it's also made to go the distance (meaning, when you aren't pairing the sneakers up with dresses or jeans, you can actually run in them). Nylon/suede upper. 5/8" heel. EVA midsole, rubber outsole. Import.
