Got a late night ramen hankering? Well, Saucony are here to ensure that your kicks match your cravings. It's pretty obvious where the 8500 Grid 'Ramen' derives its inspiration from. The shoe stirs together noodle-textured woven accents, a leather tongue patch adorned with a ramen bowl and a transparent sole designed to resemble miso broth and eggs.
Saucony have displayed impressive attention to detail with this release. Perhaps the highlight of this footwear feast is the ziplock dustbag the shoes come in. It looks just like instant noodle packaging, and it even breaks down the 'ingredients' involved in construction. (Probably best not to dip these leather sneakers in 500ml of boiling water, though.)
Come December 13, this release will reach boiling point and you'll be able to scoop up the 8500 Grid 'Ramen' over at Saucony.
