Saucony Grid Web: A blast from the recent past

Saucony continues to make a statement by releasing countless sneaker iterations. One of the brand's latest releases is the reworked Adidas Saucony Grid Web OG, initially launched in 2000. 

This kick has retro-futuristic looks that quickly gained attention for many dad sneaker fanatics. Displaying a style that is the total opposite of minimalist sneakers, the Grid Web epitomizes maximalist, beefed-up sports-inspired sneakers.

This model has an airy mesh upper overlaid with plastic web design and stripes that bleed through the midsole. These features provide support and stability while giving a one-off visual interest.

Below is its aggressive midfoot shank for ample foot support and chunky EVA midsole for lightweight cushioning. On its heel, you can find the Ground Reaction Inertia Device foam cushioning, commonly known as Grid. 

How does Saucony Grid work?

GRID is Saucony's patent technology that was introduced in 1991. This tech is made of fibers that compress independently, thus giving its wearers a stable cushioning. GRID technology is usually placed on the heel. As the foot's heel strikes the ground, the GRID bends to the heel's shape for superb cushioning.

This technology works like a trampoline. Unlike the bouncy slides or castle, usually filled with gas or liquids, the trampoline provides its jumpers more control over their movement because of the trampoline fibers that stretch while we jump on it.
