BOSTON, MA - The dog days of summer: the layers of a million Rachel haircuts are holding up valiantly in the humidity, you can kill a half hour just by bringing up Dennis Rodman's hair, America's biggest heroes are Will Smith in Independence Day and Tom Cruise in Mission Impossible. Welcome to 1996.
Even in the digital age, there's no substitute for pounding the pavement. Featuring classified newspaper ad art work on the tongue and insole, the Saucony Originals x Bodega 'Classifieds' brings the bold style and rugged spirit of classic, 90's sportswear to the enduring performance aesthetic of Saucony's Grid 8000.
Over twenty years ago, Saucony introduced a technology called the G.R.I.D. System that would be evolved over the next two decades. The system was designed to simultaneously absorb shock and control mediolateral motion.With this technology, almost 3 years in the making, we created the G.R.I.D.8000 CL. One of the key components of the G.R.I.D. system is the G.R.I.D. Cassette located in the heel of the midsole. It includes blended composite Hytrel filaments molded in an interlocking configuration. Designed to work with the midsole in reducing shock and enhancing stability.
The Saucony Originals x Bodega 'Classifieds' Grid 8000 will be available on: 09.09.2017 at the following select Saucony Originals retailers;
