Saucony has delivered a futuristic take on its Grid Azura 2000. The silhouette was revived earlier this year with a Bodega collaboration, followed by two summer-ready colorways in May. This time around, the footwear label has given the nostalgic runners a vibrant “Neon” colorway clad with synthetic multi-colored overlays.

Pink “SAUCONY” branding is embroidered at the top of the tongue over a breathable black mesh, complemented by lightly padded purple interiors with kanji stamped on the footbed — “夜露死苦” a phonetic play on the common Japanese greeting, “yoroshiku,” which roughly translates to “Nice to meet you,” used by Bozozoku biker gangs. White laces match the shade of lush suede panels woven throughout the uppers, while bright multi-colored grids appear along the body. A felted side stripe is placed at the sidewalls, mirroring a smaller one on the heel counter that’s colored in lime. Other details like a reflective strap around the heel, black leather mudguards and a crisp white midsole finalize the shoe’s futuristic design.

The Saucony Grid Azura 2000 “Neon” is currently available on sneakernstuff’s website for $149 USD.

Most recently, Saucony has reintroduced its retro Grid Web sneaker.
