American athletic footwear manufacturer Saucony collaborated with UK-based retailer OFFSPRING for a line of themed sneakers that were made to celebrate the 2016 Rio Olympics.

Dubbed the 'Saucony Shadow 5000s,' the series pays tribute to the athletic accomplishment ranking, with each variation featuring gold, silver or bronze accents. The uppers of the themed sneakers are made to complement this, with black, grey and beige colorways available.

The neutral tones are offset with a shiny material on the toes of the shoes that correspond with the metallic accents on the back of the heels. 'OFFSPRING Covent Garden 1996' is shown on the tongues of the shoes -- working to show the collaborative effort and meanwhile paying tribute to previous Olympic athletes.
