Shoe Pick #2 – Saucony

Brand: Saucony
X Sneaker Freaker Grid 9000
Black / Mint / Beige

I’ll be honest, I hadn’t heard of Saucony til I saw a guy at university rocking a pair a few months back. I can’t remember the actual pair, but they caught my eye instantly. I was doing my best to try and subtly catch a glimpse of the brand name his shoes, without it looking weird. Anyway, they’ve dropped an absolute bomb with this latest take on their Grid 9000, i’ll let the picture do the talking.

The colourway is so dope with these, so neutral, yet so sick. The splatter look on the midsole looks sweet, looks a bit like a mcflurry… yum. Nicknamed the “Bushwacker”, this shoe was produced with the collaboration of Sneaker Freaker, an Australian based sneaker magazine; as part of their 10th anniversary celebration.  Leather, suede *drools*, and mesh are all adapted into this shoe, along with an unusual (yet awesome) choice of elastic bungee material for the laces.

These look the business, and I want them on my feet immediately! Unfortunately, at a price tag of around $150 (that’s Aussie dollars btw), they’ll set you back a fair bit too.

About Tom McCluskey

My name is Tom, and this is my blog! I'm 19 years of age, and just beginning my 2nd year of a BSc/BA Product Design degree at Bournemouth University, UK. Otherwise, I live at home in Romford, London (not Essex!) during the summer period. Design is something I'm taking ever more seriously in life. Starting my degree, hoping to explore a field I had dabbled in with GCSE Graphics at school, design has gradually become something of an obsession. Shoe/Trainer/Sneaker design is something that particularly interests and inspires me, I'm quite the "sneakerhead", and I plan on using this blog to showcase my journey through university, and beyond. When it comes to extracurricular activities, I'm a big fan of sports, football and badminton in particular. West Ham United are my team, and you'd struggle to find a more passionate fan. Just ask my girlfriend, I was absolutely delirious when we won the play off's final against Blackpool earlier this year, COYI! Anyway, I hope you enjoy what I've got to showcase here in my blog, thanks for dropping by. Tom.
