Saucony Originals Grid Games Collection

During the early 90s, running shoes and video gaming went through a bit of a revolution. The Saucony Originals Grid Games Collection pays homage to the legendary footwear and video game breakthroughs of the 90s with tech inspired designs.
While trainers were getting more stability and energy with moulded pieces being added to 80s basic midsoles, the video game industry was in the midst of its own revolution, with 16 bit systems introducing never before seen graphical capabilities and taking over from their 8 bit predecessors.
The Saucony GRID SD was originally introduced slap-bang in this era in 1991, and quickly became a premium performance trainer for all types of runners. It featured Saucony’s landmark midsole cushioning system called G.R.I.D. (Ground Reaction Inertia Device).
Almost three years in the making, this running silhouette and technology marked the first time that a system simultaneously absorbed shock and provide stability for runners during their training.
This Spring, the GRID SD returns with a few adjustments to this classic trainer. It comes in four colourways – Blue, Yellow, Pink and Cyan – each silhouette features buttery suede, leather and synthetic mesh, which allows for breathability.
The Saucony Originals Grid SD Grid Games collection is available now at select locations. Check out Saucony.com for a list of retailers.
