After part 1 arrived late last month, Sneaker Politics continues their Saucony collaboration which is inspired by the Battle of New Orleans of the War of 1812. The battle celebrates its 200th anniversary. Part 2 features the same model, the Saucony Courageous. This time its dressed in a colorway inspired by American General Andrew Jackson and Jean Lafitte, the pirate whose army was recruited by Jackson to fight alongside the troops that ultimately defeated the British.
The Sneaker Politics x Saucony Courageous features a color palette taken from General Jackson's uniform, featuring navy, cream suede, and gold leather. Detailing includes a tongue which features an outline of Jackson on his horse and a blood red outsole that signifies a walk through the blood battlefield. Both insoles feature a flag; the American flag on the left and the flag of Cartagena on the right. Each pair comes with special packaging, three sets of laces, and three stickers. The first 50 customers online will receive the three gold pin set.
The Sneaker Politics x Saucony Courageous "The Jackson" arrives online at SP on November 13th, 2015. Retail will be $125.
