Making another comeback is Just Blaze, Packer Shoes and Saucony. After the three came together for the ‘Snow Beach’ Grid 9000, they return to collaborate on the Grid SD.
Inspiration for this collaboration came from the colors used in a casino. Previewed only briefly in this video, the Saucony Grid SD ‘Casino’ are worn by none other than Just Blaze. Although spotted for a moment, you can see that they come with a red base with green and tan accents hinted throughout.
The shoe features a red base done up in a combination of premium suede and a ripstop nylon material that captures the look of the grid pattern found on the shirt. Green synthetic suede references the feel of a casino table’s felt and “00” and “36” are embroidered onto the heels as a nod to the first and last numbers on the roulette wheel. Additional features include a roulette wheel graphic on the tongue label, reflective 3M accents and co-branded lace plaques and sockliners. Last but not least, the left shoe sports one white dot to represent the roulette ball.
In addition to the Grid SD, the “Casino” collection will also include a t-shirt, tote bag, bucket hat and a set of custom Bicycle cards and dice.
The Packer Shoes x Just Blaze x Saucony Grid SD ‘Casino’ will release on October 16th, 2015 via a pop-up shop in New York City’s Lower East Side on Friday, October 16th at the Wallplay space (118 Orchard St.). Make sure to check back with us for additional release details as well as images.
