Sneakersnstuff and Saucony collaborate on the Grid 9000

SNS and Saucony go beyond premium:

Putting together a premium sneaker can be a tricky proposition, particularly in the modern footwear industry. It seems like every brand, major or otherwise, has occupied every luxury niche possible. It’s even more difficult to put together a worthwhile collaboration, a concept that’s been flooding the sneaker community. Somehow, the Sneakersnstuff x Saucony Grid 9000 “Business Class” strikes the right notes in its efforts. Rather than rest on the laurels of some fancy materials and bright colors, the partners went all in. The sneaker comes with a story, clever marketing, and a good looking product.

Now, to be sure, the materials on this shoe are indeed fancy. Usually underplayed stitch patterns come to life on the premium leather upper. The base color choice only compliments the decision to go with this leather. Underneath this are sections of soft suede, including a panel on the heel. The combination isn’t exactly new, but the materials come together smoothly to relay a nostalgic inspiration.

This Grid 9000 is inspired by the Business Class section of a Scandinavian airline, a favorite the identity of whom the Sneakersnstuff crew will not share. Though that leaves us guessing, it’s easy to imagine the Tan/ Navy Polka Dot combo as that of an airplane seat. Features such as a plush midsole make it so that you’ll walk in the shoe equivalent to a classy airliner seat.

The sneaker comes in special packaging that also features a makeshift traveler’s kit, including fictional travel documents. For most releases, these additions would simply be used as a chance to boast some gimmick. To their credit, Saucony and Sneakersnstuff have cleverly aligned the add-ons with the rest of this special model’s story.

Available now, you can bet this limited release of the Grid 9000 “Business Class” will be flying off shelves!
