ABOUT
VHS or Video Home System is a standard for recording or playing moving image from magnetic tape cassettes. It was developed by JVC in the 1970s. VHS enabled the mainstream consumer to take control about how to watch a movie. In an age of YouTube, Netflix and the Internet as a whole this might not be too easy to understand. But before VHS you were only able to watch a movie when going to the cinema or sitting in front of the TV at the right moment. With VHS you were able to buy a movie - they cost a fortune though, to rent a movie in a video rental store or to record a movie from TV. It was a revolution! VHS became the most successful global video format for over two decades. At the end of the 90s a new format came out, DVD. The DVD killed the VHS format in a very slow process through the coming years. The last VHS hollywood movie to be officially released was in 2006.

DESIGN
The simple black VHS cassette was the main inspiration for the design of the Saucony Shadow 5000 VHS. The black upper is made of satin suede, the Saucony logo and heel tab are constructed from smooth leather and the toebox and side panel are predominantly mesh. The perforated suede leather tongue features a label with the TGWO script logo and the transparent eyelets represent spools of the tape. On the side of the heel you’ll find a debossed TGWO box logo. A TV test pattern color chart and a silver metallic VHSaucony logo top of the heel section. The mudguard of the right shoe features the classic control symbols of every video tape recorder: rewind, stop, pause, play, fast forward and record, whilst the eject symbol fits perfectly on the insole. Finally, the see through outsole was inspired by the TV screen and shows a mix of white noise and the TGWO script logo.

SHADOW 5000
The first release of the Shadow 5000 was at the peak of VHSs popularity in 1989. It was a workhorse running shoe that built the reputation of Saucony across the world. Even today, the Shadow remains in the Saucony performance line as a technical shoe.

PACKAGING
