Was the Sneaker Freaker team going for a subtle WWF tribute with their tenth anniversary pair with Saucony? Probably not, but the guys at Extra Butter decided to make the connection anyway, cranking up the nostalgia factor on this special Saucony Grid 9000 release by showing them side by side with the Bushwhackers of WWF fame (sorry folks, sold separately). If you were onsite at Sneaker Con this weekend you know by now that EB is one of the select spots here in the US to get their hands on this beautiful minty collabo, so act fast if you want to add them to the collection. Click through with us for some more angles of the Sneaker Freaker x Saucony Grid 9000 ‘Bushwhackers’ and get in touch with Extra Butter to make your purchase.

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.
