Winter in the Northeast calls for comfort food, and we’ve cooked something up that is sure to turn you from cold and hangry to warm and soleful. Our dish of choice is one of the most popular in the world right now: Ramen.
The Grid 8500 ‘Ramen’ features a mix of smooth & perforated Miso Brown leather – paneled in an engineered embroidered noodle like material to round out the upper. The outsole features a transparent Miso broth with a garnish flecked design and an egg inspired Grid device to top it off. We’ve transformed the infamous Saucony river logo into a transparent Brown Miso river. On the tongue, you will find a debossed leather badge featuring a white Ramen bowl to symbolize a traditional porcelain serving bowl. To tie it all together, we’ve given you two choices of rope laces: a Nori Green Miso speckled lace and a secondary Red Miso speckled lace.
Special packaging can add so much to the story of a sneaker. Since we’ve created a shoe based on Ramen, it’s only right that we accompany each pair with a special Saucony Ramen bag. The Saucony Ramen ziplock back features custom art and nutrition facts. You will be able to use this bag as a dust bag or keep it clean as an artifact from this iconic Saucony Originals release.
The Saucony Originals Grid 8500 ‘Ramen’ will be available exclusively on Saucony.com Wednesday, December 13th, 2017.
