Sticking with the Saucony Courageous model used on last month's "The Cannon" release, this sneaker pays tribute to the heroic efforts of General Andrew Jackson during the battle, whose decision to let pirate Jean Lafitte's troops fight alongside the Americans proved to be pivotal.
To achieve this, Sneaker Politics looked directly to the General's uniform worn by Jackson. "The Jackson" is composed of navy and cream velvet suede with a hit of gold leather at the rear. A silhouette of Jackson mounted atop his horse appears on the perforated tongue, while the outsole has been given a red coat to signify the bloodshed on the battlefield.
The Sneaker Politics x Saucony Courageous "The Jackson" releases tomorrow, November 13, at 7 p.m. EST online and in store.
