Who should not buy it

When it comes to colorways, the Grid Azura 2000 might not be the ideal kick to recommend. If hues are a huge factor in your decision-making, perhaps the Saucony Jazz Original is a better choice. Also, check out the Saucony Bullet instead if you want something with a sleeker silhouette.

Saucony Grid Azura 2000: Reviving a breathable gem 

The Grid Azura 2000 was left to collect dust on the shelves until Bodega, a retailer, helped pull the silhouette out from the archives. Moving to a new millennium, the no-longer-a-secret sneaker features a bold shape that shakes the street-fashion scene to its core. With its toothy overlays and see-through, mono mesh windows on the toe box and side panels, you can enjoy taking a walk on a hot summer day with fresh feet.
