This Saucony Grid Shadow 2 Is Made Of Mushrooms

Concepts of sustainability and eco-friendliness have never had a bigger influence in sneakers than they do now. Every major brand has dedicated a slice of their product offerings to greener initiatives, from Nike’s Next Nature program to adidas’ usage of reclaimed ocean plastic. Showing that runners can get in on the action as well, the latest Saucony Grid Shadow 2 showcases a heavy emphasis on organic materials and recycled construction.

The claim in the headline isn’t sensationalist- this pair really is built on a foundation of HyphaLite leather, a plant-based material that blends together mushroom fibers and natural latex to approximate the “real” thing. Additionally, the interior is composed of recycled laces, the outsole utilizes reground rubber, and hemp is woven throughout the shoe. It’s a comprehensively green outfitting for the Grid Shadow 2, with the hardware even reflected in its colors. Off-white sand reminiscent of oyster mushrooms sets the tone, while more traditional fungi brown marks the Three River branding on the quarter.

The Saucony Grid Shadow 2 Mushroom is available now via Saucony.com for $140. Enjoy official photos below, and follow our “Where To Buy” section directly to the Saucony product page.

Staying on Boston-based brands, the Joe Freshgoods New Balance 1000 collection drops this week.
