UPDATE: Good news, the Saucony Grid 9000 Nippon pack will not be a Billy's exclusive, as was initially believed, and now the rest of the world will be able to wrap their sweaty palms around a pair of their own. The gang at Up There Store have got theirs in stock, hit 'em up now or run down to your local and see if they've got the goods.
Billy’s Tokyo have partnered up with Saucony, putting a Japanese influence into the popular Grid 9000 silhouette. The Nippon pack contains two alternate colourways, each centred on traditional elements of Japanese culture. The brightly coloured ‘Japanese Garden’ model features a rich colour palette drawn from the architectural elements of the centuries-old gardens around the nation. The second, the ‘Zen’ model, has a dark upper of plush suede and leather – working as one to reflect enlightenment, meditation, spiritual unity and awakening.
Both Billy’s x Saucony Grid 9000 ‘Nippon’ models are available now, exclusively from Billy’s.
