Saucony is paying tribute to its hometown of Boston with its latest Grid SD.
Inspired by the gold-domed amphitheater in the Bulfinch Building inside the Massachusetts General Hospital, the shoe features a shiny rose gold upper with patent leather details. Finishing details include perforated panels on the toe and side, debossed Saucony branding on the heel, an off-white Grid midsole and a suede tongue.
No word on if there is any additional significance behind the amphitheatre but here’s a fun (and random) fact for you — the Bulfinch Building was the site of the first public demonstration of the use of inhaled ether as a surgical aesthetic on October 16, 1846, otherwise known as Ether Day. If that doesn’t impress you, then hopefully the sneakers still do. Head to Saucony specialty stockists like Feature Sneaker Boutique and cop these rose gold beauties for $120 USD.
