Key Features: From END.: “A shellfish-inspired fabrication decks out the GRID 9000 uppers and GRID 8000 sole. Bringing seafood styling to one of the classics, delicate ‘jaffa’ suede and rich ‘orange peel’ leathers mimic the bright crustaceans, with weathered patina leathers on the tongue and collar.”
“Fastened through orange lacing, alternative chilled-blue ropes are brought to the table. With right and left claw printed leather insoles making it excellent bait, the END. x Saucony GRID 8500 ‘Lobster’ is caught in a fish net, and boxed in its own bespoke display tank.”
Release Date: May 11
Price: €149 (approximately $178 USD)

Editor’s Notes: END. and Massachusetts-based Saucony have teamed up to pay homage to one of New England’s most beloved dishes, the lobster. The American running brand’s GRID 8500 silhouette is used as the canvas for this special project.
Alongside the shellfish-inspired white and orange colorway, END. and Saucony pulled out all the stops to make this sneaker look and feel authentic. A claw-printed insole and blue rope laces add fun details, while the packaging consists of a fish net and a bespoke display tank.
