Saucony Bring Back The Azura From The 1980s Running Archives

Saucony Azura ST Trainer 1988

The Saucony Azura is revived in all its OG 80s running glory for December 2018 with a special 30th anniversary re-release.

When it comes to anything Saucony from the 1980s it’s generally packed full of running nostalgia. Without sounding too much of a sneaker nerd (that’s certainly not a bad thing by the way!), Saucony actually released the majority of their well known running silhouettes throughout the 1980s. Styles like the Jazz (1981), the DXN (1983), the Shadow Original (1985) and the Shadow 5000 (1989) were all born in the neon magic and electronic sounds of the 80s era. Another Saucony style to come from the decade was the Azura, a no fuss running trainer from 1988 that went with the tagline ‘No Artificial Ingredients’.

To mark the 30th anniversary of the late 80s, no fuss, Saucony runner, the Azura ST is revived in all its OG running glory for December 2018. The ‘dedicated to runners’ silhouette was born out of the desire to create a running trainer as safe and comfortable as possible with this latest drop offering a like for like iteration of the original 1988 trainer. Highlights include mesh, leather and textile uppers, OG 80s colours of yellow, blue and white alongside an EVA midole alongside for all day comfort.
