Saucony Grid 8000 (Lobster)
When we talk about lobster, it's usually associated with the finer things in life –Champagne, caviar, Saucony. That’s right, Saucony’s new Grid 8000 treatment is definitely one of life’s coveted luxuries. The shoe is made from plush suede and leather and draws inspiration from the tasty crustacean. The connection likely comes from Saucony's location, as the brand is based on the East Coast of the US where the nation’s lobster fishing industry sprouted and is now focused.
The shoe jumps out instantly with its upper dominated by pink suede and leather – giving way to a more mellow, flesh coloured suede around the collar. The midsole is splashed with pink to tie the whole shoe down to its gum outsole.
