Saucony returns with a new make-up of its Grid SD MD, entitled “Eel.” Realized in monotone black and white, the sneaker blends patterns and fabrics across its understated upper, much like 2015’s Grid 9000 END. collaboration.
The “Eel” features a muted color palette, keeping to monochrome colors. The understated colors allow for the sneaker’s extensive pattern-mixing to avoid becoming overwhelming. Recalling the eponymous fish, the shoe boasts textured leather and abstract designs, like a checkerboard pattern on the tongue and pebbling on the front and rear of the shoe. Matching laces complement the detailed sneaker, as do the white EVA midsole and black lining.
