Saucony and BAIT have joined forces to create a new version of the Shadow Original that is not bad at all. The Shadow Original “Cruel World 2″ is a completely vegan sneaker that employs hemp, faux-suede, and canvas — yet unlike most things vegan, it doesn’t suck. Finished off with a smiley face on the heel, these shoes are proof that cruelty-free shoes can hold their own. Look for them starting April 26th from END.
