Style of the Saucony Grid 9000 Knit

The speckled midsole and the unique pattern of the knitted material make this a fashionable choice for many sneaker fans that could easily pair them in jeans, short pants, and another casual garb. The overall look does not come far behind other brands with the same knit materials on their footwear. The same elements have recently become popular during the spring and summer months when lighter and more breathable materials are utilized in many sneakers.

Notable Features

The superior cushioning coming from the Ground Reaction Inertia Device or GRID midsole of this retro sneaker remains to be its most striking feature. The soft cushioning of the thick midsole was designed in the 1990s as a feature that would simultaneously absorb shock and regulate mediolateral motion for a smooth run without impact and fatigue on the foot.
