The Limited Edition Saucony Type A5 “Kona” Ironman

When it comes to footwear, Saucony has pulled out all the stops for its athletes competing in this weekend’s Ironman World Championship in Kona, Hawaii. Similar to the Kinvara 4 “Kona” debuted last month, the brand has also rolled out a limited edition of its Type A5 racing flat in a similar color palette.

Though the Type A5 “Kona” doesn’t have the same Hawaiian-inspired print as its Kinvara counterpart, it does feature a fairly identical light Green/Orange/Yellow/Blue colorway that pays homage to Kona tradition.

Unfortunately, if you’re not signed up for the Ironman, the chances of you get your feet into a pair of either the Type A5 “Kona” or Kinvara 4 “Kona” are pretty much non-existent. The limited edition shoes are only available for athletes who will take part in the iconic race. But perhaps Saucony will show mercy on us all and do a limited edition run for the general public somewhere down the line. Don’t hold your breath though.
