Saucony Grid SD Quilted History
With the rise of the lifestyle-oriented ethos of the early 90s, shoe companies focused on producing shoes that revolve around aiding runners and work-out nuts to perform better. The idea caught the works of Saucony, a shoe company from Massachusetts with an impressive lineage tracing up to the start of the century. The company started to indulge their resources in creating the perfect shoe that caters maximum efficiency with a hint of modern style.
It took Saucony three years to improve the said shoe, but in 1991, the company released its innovation prodigy called the Saucony Grid SD which is a pioneer idea still being used today. The G.R.I.D. technology stands for Ground Reaction Inertia Device which enables the runner to center its foot to prevent pronation, absorb impact for running longevity, and distribute the pressure on every stride throughout the foot. Nowadays, the Grid SD is improved and is still being utilized today as the PWRGRID+ system.
The Grid SD was re-released from time to time with a variety of colorways but remaining close to the original. The later years saw a trend in the increasing demand for casual sneakers with low profile styles and Saucony answered with the Saucony Grid SD Quilted model. Aside from the original suede and leather upper design, the Grid SD Quilted features diamond weaves resembling a quilt.
