Sneaker magazine and industry principal Sneaker Freaker has displayed their level of knowledge quite well through their sneaker collaborations in the past. Asics Gels, New Balances, and Sauconys alike – whenever these Aussies get their hands on a pair of shoes, it’s time to pay attention. Sneaker Freaker recently teased their upcoming Saucony collaboration in their German Sneaker Freaker Issue 24 (which, overall, has revealed itself to be the ‘September Vogue’ because it’s filled front-to-back with gold), but here we have a first look at their 10th Anniversary celebration dubbed the ‘Bushwacker'; it features a mix of Black, Mint Green, and Beige, with diamond-mesh toes and ankles and roped laces held together by lace-locks. On the Saucony logo, you’ll notice the customary ‘S’ stitched between the three dots, but peep the medial side and you’ll see ‘F’ – a nice little easter egg to make these that much more special. The Sneaker Freaker 10th Anniversary x Saucony Grid 9000 ‘Bushwacker’ is expected to release in July at select Saucony retailers like End, so check out the detailed images below and stay tuned for more updates on the Grid 9000 and other Saucony partnerships.
