Bodega and Saucony are at it again, blending their knack for storytelling with distinctive sneaker designs. This February, the duo introduced the Bodega x Saucony Grid Shadow 2 Jaunt Woven. This sneaker captures the essence of leisure and laid-back vibes, much like Bodega's previous collaborations, with a heavy emphasis on stoner culture.
Delving into the design, the Bodega x Saucony Grid Shadow 2 Jaunt Woven embodies craftsmanship and thoughtful material selection. The sneaker boasts an upper constructed from a blend of stone-washed 18oz canvas, hemp, and cotton, setting a premium standard while highlighting sustainability. The color palette is an ode to nature and stoner culture, with earthy tones of green and brown adorning the mudguard and overlays, complemented by a tan hemp base that wraps around the iconic Saucony logo. Bodega's influence is unmistakable, with its branding emblazoned on the tongue and insole, signifying the collaborative effort. The design is rounded off with a durable gum rubber outsole speckled with red, green, and white accents, underpinned by a molded EVA sole unit for unmatched comfort and support.
The Bodega x Saucony Grid Shadow 2 Jaunt Woven will release on February 23, 2024, exclusively through Bodega online and in-store at the brand's Boston and LA locations. A second drop via saucony.com will follow on March 1. Available in men’s sizing, the retail price is set at $140.
