Saucony embrace Autumn with this Pumpkin Spice Grid SD. Taking its inspiration from straight from the Pumpkin Spiced Latte, yes you did read that right, this iteration of the Grid SD features a mix of premium burnt orange leather and suede on the upper with metallic orange accents giving a nod to the smoky & bold hues of Autumn.

As with all things Saucony produce, the construction is pretty special. The toe box is wrapped in perforated cream Wolverine silkee suede while the midsole features an orange rust, smoky brown and transitions into white with brown speckle towards the toe box. A pigskin sock liner ensures increased comfort with every wear and suede adorns the tongue with cinnamon accent rope laces.

This shoe will be available in limited numbers from The Hip Store on Friday 28th October

To this day they are recognised as leaders in the field of design, innovation and production and continue to create some of the most sought after casual shoes in the market.

Bodega x Saucony Elite Shadow 5000 ReIssue

In 2010, when the Saucony Elite concept was born, the idea was for these reinterpretations of classic silhouettes to be released exclusively through high-level Japanese retailers. Well, as you can imagine, people were not very happy about that and while Saucony Elite shoes, ultimately, did not end up exclusive to Japan, they still became pretty exclusive and highly revered.

Six years later, that the Bodega entry into the Saucony Elite series remains extremely sought after. As part of Bodega’s ongoing tenth anniversary celebrations, the Bodega archive has been rifled through and luckily for us this much desired shoe is back.

Launches – SATURDAY 15th OCTOBER
