Continuing a long collaborative tradition rooted in their common state of Massachusetts, Saucony and Bodega tackle the GRID 8000 for a design based on the classifieds section of the newspaper. With mock-classified advertisements on the tongue and footbed, the rest of the model boldly applies red patent leather across the heel along with hits of black and yellow suede. A mesh area hits the side panels, and a perforated suede heel panel appears as well.
